Congratulations, you’ve made it through 2020 and successfully arrived in 2021! As he relief washes over us all and I begin to compile my best films of 2020 list, this year wastes no time in producing its own cinematic content.
Overall, Away is an achievement Gints Zilbalodis should be proud of and should be excellent show reel material to get him a Pixar short, but as a film, Away doesn’t do an awful lot to warrant its feature runtime. Lacking in the fundamental emotion required to make this the next Red Turtle, Away is a undercooked proof of concept that, hopefully, could lead to bigger and brighter things.
Away will be on Digital Download from 18th January and can be pre-ordered on iTunes here & AppleTV here
