The Girl On The Roof Review

In his directorial debut, Skeet Ulrich brings to life the thoughts and actions of a bullied girl in The Girl On The Roof.

This short film tells the story of Lila who is a lonely, isolated girl who is bullied at school and ignored in a loveless home.

The 25 mins short film is a shocking and brilliant portrayal of how bullying can affect people and will have you hooked from start to finish.

Not only will the film grab your attention in the very opening scenes but the film comes with a moral and an important one.

What can be said is that Skeet is trying to get across the impact bullying has on a person and that someone should not be afraid to speak about it.

The Girl On The Roof attracted film stars including Lennie James, Todd Lowe, Susan Mary Pratt, Naiia Ulrich, and writer/producer Amelia Jackson-Gray.

Skeet Ulrich has appeared on our screens in the likes of the cult franchise Scream and the TV series Jericho but has now taken control behind the camera.

Skeet has worked alongside many directors including Ang Lee, Bruce Beresford and James Brooks and through his 20 years of experience, he has become a creative force in the film and TV world.

The award-winning debut is an engaging and thought-provoking film that had its world premiere at LA Shorts and won the award for Best Short at Catalina Film Festival.

Not only that, but the film went on to win Best Short at ITVFEST and will be enticing the audience of Williamsburg Independent Film Festival between Nov 20-23.

It is an outstandingly brilliant film that deserves all the recognition that it has already received and undoubtedly will receive.
