Review: Magic Trick

Last modified date

Magic Trick, directed by Christopher Lennonx-Aasen, is a stylish, dreamy and romantic encounter between two strangers in a coffee shop. 

One orders an americano, and the other, a maple soy latte. Americano (played by Donia Kash) and Maple Soy (played by Jessica MacLeod) are brimming with chemistry. The playful lines and wholesome moments are very well placed.

Lennonx-Aasen is a filmmaker and a musician, and it shows in the way he uses jazz and the harp (at least, I think it’s a harp) to set the mood and atmosphere.

I would say that Magic Trick is a very smart and amusing LGBTQ+ short film, and I would recommend this to anyone and everyone.

In his youth Alvin loved watching movies and would find himself spending his lunch money and allowance at the box office. He loved the Matrix and the X-Men films, and somewhere along the way, he discovered a love for horror movies — HereditaryMidsommar and Mother! being his favourites. He now holds a professional writing diploma, a couple of journalism degrees, and likes to spend his free time reviewing movies on IMDB and for various magazines. @alvinwct
