In Translation – Kilter Short

Short Film

After a particularly long and exhausting workday, James returns home only to find his wife, Marie-Claire, cool toward him and engrossed in an intimidating book. Though obviously enamored with one another, they remain cautiously in their interaction, each struggling to maintain the upper hand, yet never saying what they truly mean. Navigating through fits of false bravado and stubborn pride they endeavor to really listen to one another and, for the first time in a long time say what they mean. Based on the story of the same name by John Gould from his Giller Prize short-listed collection, kilter: 55 fictions.
