Stand and Deliver
Nice acting from Almos. Dialog is convincing. scenario progresses and plays out with convincing development and relationships. Good. goodgoodgood.
But also kind of short, and the last half was really... quick. I feel like it should have been almost another 45 mins, easily and comfortably.

My only criticism is that this was way too tidy. Unrealistically tidy. He comes to a crescendo and then gets heard, gets accepted, gets help, and gets better just by telling people because *togetherness is magic*. Up until they pretty much presented the polar opposite of the truth about the way people suffering from depression, anxiety, pstd, and general fuckery are treated by society irl, this was really really good. Except for Emma Watson's hair. I only mention this because her hair has always gotten my attention with it's BLAM of oHellYes. So. Emma Watson's hair may be mortal after all UPDATES TO FOLLOW.
