Short Film Spotlight: TWO WRONGS

Welcome back to another installment of SHORT FILM SPOTLIGHT. This week, we take a look at a film that showcases gang violence and revenge in Manchester, England. Directed by Simon Cade and written by Jonathan Farnhan, I bring to you TWO WRONGS.

As I'm sure many of you are, I'm used to hearing about gangs and violence by watching the news. However, seeing it in film like this gives it a fresh prospective. After watching Two Wrongs, I was reminded of how violence affects people everywhere in the world

Two Wrongs tells the story of a young man who gets revenge on the local gang for killing his brother. This theme is seen throughout literature, someone avenging a loved one's death. I enjoyed this short film because it made me think. It made me think about death, family, loyalty and how violence affects the world around us.

Sometimes the film industry glorifies violence in movies and this bothers me to a certain point, because that's not real life. However, Two Wrongs depicts events that DO happen and how it can happen to anyone, no matter their station in life.

This film had a great message about how revenge is not always the right way to go and how responding to violence with more violence will never solve the problem.
