Wasp

Published by under Short Films

Watching “Wasp” have changed my view on single mothers. It have showed me that they can selfish, but at the same time selfless. There wasn’t much of  a script and some of Zoe’s (single mother) actions had made me wonder about her judgment, but in the very end she did show that she cared for her children the most. Even though she had tried so hard to cover up the fact that she had children, she still revealed her secret in end because of her concern for their safety.  The acting was actually pretty good, considering that this is a short film. It was short, but sweet; all the information packed into those 11 minutes made it feel like a full-length featured film.

    Wasp was only 11 minutes? I thought it was 23 minutes long, and one of the other films was 11 minutes…

    I think her selflessness shone through at the end. Even though she was hiding her children Dave throughout the movie, once a wasp came, she immediately went to the rescue without a second thought.

    I liked how her priority was always her children no matter what happened.

    I agree with Alex, Zoe is entitled to be a little selfish, she can’t be expected to look after four kids for the rest of her life. By finding a new boy friend/husband, both she and her kids will benefit.

    Single mothers are under a lot of pressure to raise their children. Society looks down upon them with pity. I agree that it is a lot of hard work and they can sometimes be selfish, BUT I think their are entitled to be selfish. The short beautifully portrayed all the trials of a struggling single mother that has to put aside her own interests to care for her children.

    The only reason why she did not tell Dave that she did not have children was because she was afraid he would reject her. While this does not seem proper, I do not blame her at all.

    The movie actually had a very important message. Many times young girls have children too early and feel like they have lost the opportunity to experience life so they try to seek happiness and enjoyment in any way that they can She was afraid that she would be stuck taking care of children for the rest of her life so she wanted to make sure that she could at least enjoy her life a little bit and share it with someone that she might love.
