His Letter To Her Will Break Your Heart. Is This What It Means To Love Someone Forever?

"It's so strange to think that someone I knew so well is now a total stranger to me."
So says the unnamed narrator in Australian filmmaker Nick L'Barrow's short film "I Miss You."
Directed by Anton Sheptooha and L'Barrow, "I Miss You" is based on Moonfruit Comic's "Reasons." With heartbreaking cinematography and perfectly-paced narration, the film examines the aftermath of a breakup, viewed through a nostalgic lens that follows a relationship's beginning in love at first sight to its eventual ending.
