A Life Less Ordinary
Do you sometimes feel like you're invisible? Do you feel your life just happens without anyone noticing? In a deserted cafeteria, a handsome stranger offers a young woman an unusual proposition that he guarantees will cure her seemingly bland existence. His offer sounds strange, yet appealing. What should she do? What would you do? Written, directed and edited by Emmanuel Jespers. Personal Spectator is based on the play "Les 7 Jours de Simon Labrosse" written by Carole Frechette. Principal cast: Tom Harper and Emily Hamilton.
