Miracle Fish: A Short Film of Nearly Unbearable Suspense

Miracle Fish is a live-action short film directed by the Australian filmmaker Luke Doolan, which was nominated for Best Live Action Short at the 2010 Academy Awards.  The film tells the story of 8 year-old Joe, who has a birthday he will never forget.  After friends tease him at school, Joe sneaks off to the nurse’s offfice, wishing everyone in the world would go away.  He wakes up to find his dream may have become a reality.

The boy is inadvertently placed in mortal danger, which unfolds at first as the quiet examination of playground alienation before abruptly shifting into nearly unbearable suspense.  Miracle Fish is a real thriller with undeniably effective cinematic power.
