I was wondering if anyone else happened to see the short film nominated for an Oscar in live action short film, called "Instead of Abracadabra." It's about a small town guy who wants to be a great performing magician. I went to see the 5 nominees at a small art house theater. The first four were so depressing (well, The New Tenants was a dark comedy but had a high violent body count) I wanted to chug drano, then this comedy finished off the set, which was refreshing. But I could just see magicians taking offense, as we often do. It's definitely a funny movie. It's a character we've all met. Any one else see it?

I guess that's just a trailer.

That is indeed it. It's funny to see a 47sec trailer for a 22minute movie. That's a good chunk of it. It did capture the tone of the film though, which cannot be said for many mainstream hollywood big budget movie trailers.
