When you hear a film title called Sprinkles it automatically makes you wonder what the movie could possibly be about. Speculation starts to ensue and when you hear about all of the awards it’s won, how could you possibly go wrong by watching it? The answer is simple: you can’t. Recently, Sprinkles has been going through the film festival circuit and is raking in tons of awards. After watching it, I can certainly see why!
Written and directed by Roger A. Scheck (Nobody Loves Alice), Sprinkles is a ten minute non-stop thrill ride with constant twist and turns. Brooke Lewis (IMurders) gives a powerhouse performance as Maura and you can see that her award from Zed Fest Film Festival 2016 for Outstanding Acting Performance Award in Sprinkles is much deserved. Not to mention, she has also won the Action On Film International Film Festival 2011 Write Brothers Excellence In Film Award For Sprinkles and the Best Actress In A Short Film Award For Sprinkles at the PollyGrind Film Festival in 2011. Considering that this short film has been around since 2011 and is still racking up the awards in 2016 speaks volumes to Scheck’s and Lewis’s talents.
Sprinkles follows Maura, a very expensive call girl who has been hired by Gary (Don Danielson: Boxes). The tension is clearly in the air as soon as they are alone in the room together. The nice chat between the two quickly takes a sadistic turn when Gary gets abusive towards Maura. Soon it’s revealed that he has quite the fetish, which sets up the rest of the story perfectly. Will Gary be the one left satisfied or will Maura be able to sprinkle her way out of this sticky situation?
This movie may only be ten minutes in length, but it has the ability to grab your attention and keep your eyes glued to the screen the entire time. It’s almost as if you are there in the room with Lewis and Danielson. I don’t want to give too much away because this is certainly a short you are going to want to check out! Kudos to Brooke, Scheck and the entire crew for an amazing production. Sprinkles delivers the nail-biting tension we all long for in a movie. Check it out when you get the chance!
