'Crushes Turn Into Pumpkins and Pumpkins Turn Into Love'

A comic short film reenacts real life romance.

In this short film director Bianca Giaever and fashion designer Rachel Antonoff take on the subject of love. We meet Antonoff’s parents—well actually, we meet Antonoff’s parents as they meet and fall for each other in 1972. Done in a similar style as Giaever’s initial viral blockbuster, The Scared Is Scared, the film uses the voices of Rick and Shira (Antonoff’s parents) as they recall, and sometimes forget, exactly how their relationship blossomed. The film, which proves to be a family affair, stars Jack Antonoff (playing his father) opposite actress Gillian Jacobs of the television show Community. The cast also includes actresses Mae Whitman and Jenny Slate.
