The Story: A couple in a financial crisis steals a teapot and discovers that whenever they hurt themselves it magically produces money. But what seems to be a blessing in disguise at first soon turns into a dangerous game and the two start losing control.

Review: Since I have seen Michael Angarano in Speak (2004) and Juno Temple in Dirty Girl (2010) I follow their work and I am quite fond of it. The performance they deliver in The Brass Teapot is beautiful, and you can feel the love the two characters share which keeps them together during the financial struggle, and how a simple teapot is threatening to destroy everything they have. The idea of the story is fresh and interesting, but doesn’t seem to be enough for a full- length movie. The acting was entertaining enough to keep me interested, but the thin story development would have been better as 30-minutes short movie. Nonetheless I think that The Brass Teapot delivers a good message: If things become perfect too fast and easy they usually have a catch or end up badly. So Beware!

Rating: 5.5/10
