Though you can currently see her on top of the North American box office in the zom-rom-com “Warm Bodies,” Teresa Palmer went back to her Australian roots recently, starring in the Nash Edgerton-helmed short “Bear.” After making waves on the festival circuit last year stopping in Cannes, Milano, Athens and SXSW , you can now pull up a chair and give it watch in the comfort of your own home courtesy of Vice.
Edgerton writes, directs, and stars in the short as a boyfriend who plans the perfect birthday surprise for his girlfriend, played by Palmer. From there, things go wrong. To say any more would be to ruin the surprises, but this one is well worth your time.
The short is a sequel to Edgerton’s earlier David Michôd-co-written short “Spider” (which won an award at Sundance in 2008) which saw the same boyfriend character attempt to surprise a girlfriend with equally unintended results. Check out both shorts below.
