“Would you please just listen?! Do not throw anything!” Marriage. There’s nothing like, amirite? Ha ha ha. This is one hell of a brutal short film, but that’s the point – it is a dark comedy after all. I (Don’t) Love U is a short film made by the Oklahoma-based writing & directing duo known as “LAMAR NIK“. A newlywed couple’s routine argument over finances spirals out of control, forcing them to confront their true feelings about one another, no matter the cost. Starring Lauren Analla as Samantha, Blayne Childers as Ryan, and Jove Leatherbury as Elliott. This will probably make you cringe and laugh at the same time, which is a good thing. I guess? Just hope no one has a fight like this in real life. Though who am I kidding? We all do.
