Take out is an uber-cool
coming of age short
by Canadian director Jean-Francois Monette
. It tells the story of Roary
, a high-school
student with a part-time job delivering chicken dinners who soon develops an insane fantasy over a customer he becomes aquatinted
) on a routine delivery.
I simply loved this film, even though it talks about issues
I'm partly uncomfortable with. The way it was filmed and presented was simply awesome. There were several little twists that I though were excellent in the movie; The monologue
Roary gives at the first of the movie (about his hate for chicken), the bond between him and his closest friend, the significance of Trivial Pursuit
in the short, etc. It's just great, I can’t say that enough - Go try to find it (and watch it) if you can.
