Bryce Dallas Howard in "Despair"

A new arrestingly stylish short film from NOWNESS, this one starring actress Bryce Dallas Howard (that’s Ron Howard’s daughter, natch) in photographer-turned-director Alex Prager’s “Despair.” The look is 1960s Los Angeles, and the story all noir in this film that “takes its cues from the opening of Charles Laughton’s ‘Night of the Hunter (1955),’ and the Hans Christian Andersen-inspired 1948 ballet ‘The Red Shoes.’” Howard’s lost woman makes a mysterious phone call, stumbles upon a symbolic red door, and experiences existential ennui—until she meets her dramatic end. It may be incomprehensible, but it’s also very pretty. [NOWNESS]
