Columbus Short and Tanee McCall’s new short film “The End Again” so perfectly captures the range of emotions of a couple who are going through a breakup, that it would be easy to assume that the short film is about their own real-life relationship ups and downs.
In the new 15-minute romantic drama, written by Felicia Pride, produced by Latisha Fortune and directed by Crystle C. Roberson, we meet Jane Salmon (McCall) and Joe Maxwell (Short) who have been together for six years, but after several attempts to reconcile, realize it’s time for them to go their separate ways. As she clears the last of her belongings from their shared apartment, frustration, anger, care and nostalgia play a tug-of-war with the couple’s emotions as they try to move on once and for all…maybe. But Tanee says her breakup with her husband is just an “unfortunate coincidence” to the plot of the film. “It was completely not correlated at all…but yeah it’s, life imitating art, art imitating life.”
