First let me say I have never heard of the word “Adorkable” but I LOVE IT. This is such a sweet film. The short film is broken up into chapters with pulp fiction / reservoir dogs style music.

When Eleven Year old Ophelia figures out how to entice Tommy Lemenchick to come to her house, she finally is able to get Tommy Lemenchick to give her. What occurs after is a plot twist that can only happen in middle school.

You GOT ME… I really thought the short was going one way but it totally went another – Good one!
