APPLE TV+ | SHORT FILM
In the quirky little tale of Blush, we follow an astronaut who finds himself on a new planet, where he is captivated by one of the planet’s beautiful inhabitants. They fall in love and have children, creating a glowing, colorful life. However, things take a turn for the worse and the astronaut faces a ruthless tragedy and has to learn how to find his glow again.
There are many moments where I was like “oh this is cute” to “ah, I see where this is going”, but by the end I was still pleasantly surprised how the visuals were chosen to represent feelings with absolutely no dialogue. The animation was very smooth and intriguing. I appreciate that it wasn’t completely tragic like a Pixar movie, but still moving enough to get the point across to be perfect for folks of all ages.
Blush is available now on Apple TV!
