With Oscar Isaac becoming the pilot we all want to be total buds with in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” and set wreak havoc this summer as the villain in “X-Men: Apocalypse,” here’s a little reminder of why he got those gigs: he’s a great actor. And Isaac has taken a moment out of his busy schedule to make the short “Lightningface.”
Written and directed by Brian Petsos, the story follows a man who starts to seriously unravel after an incident, leading to a transformation. If you listen closely, you can hear the voice of the film’s other big star, Kristen Wiig. All told, this looks like a quirky bit of fun.
No release date yet, but I presume I’ll show up on the festival circuit. Watch below. [Live For Films]
