It’s difficult to create something that’s strange, funny, sad, sweet, awkward, slightly cringe-inducing (in a good way), heartfelt and both familiar and unique. It’s even more difficult to do that in just six minutes, but director Natalie Falt manages it with The Loneliest Boy Band.
In the short film, ‘Dusty Jacobson is as excited about finally having a date as he is about boy bands but will HungBrad show up?’ That’s the bare bones of the story, but it’s in the manchild creation of Dusty that the interest in the short film lies. Falt co-wrote the film with Arne Gjelten, who also plays Dusty, a character who is both introvert and extrovert at the same time – full of hope, but also slightly hopeless.
