Short Film Review by Chris Olson
Never one to shy away from controversial topics, filmmaker Lee Whittaker has a proven track record of telling stories that get to the heart of important and compelling themes. His previous short film, Catching Fireflies, was a whimsical yet engaging tale about child homelessness. Not so whimsical, but just as engaging short film Aimee, tackles another difficult subject - child sex trafficking in the U.S. - with formidable results in all aspects of filmmaking, but giving audiences too much of a good thing.
"Loved it...but want to see more! It feels like an opener of a feature film that I now really really want to see."
The European Independent
"Like being given all your favourite foods as a starter, audiences will crave Whittaker’s film as a full banquet with all the trimmings of a feature length."
