THE STRANGE ONES is a 2011 short film written and directed by Christopher Radcliff and Lauren Wolkstein, and starring David Call (TINY FURNITURE, TWO GATES OF SLEEP), Merritt Wever (NURSE JACKIE, MICHAEL CLAYTON), and Tobias Campbell (CONVICTION, SALT).
The film follows two travelers – a man and a boy (David Call and Tobias Campbell) – whose car has broken down,
and who stumble upon a small roadside motel, where a girl (Merritt Wever) offers to help them. At first all seems
normal, but an unseen tension begins to mount between the three of them, leading to a startling discovery. Mysterious and evocative, THE STRANGE ONES serves to strip away the ordinary situation it presents in order to offer a brief glimpse of a complicated, dangerous, and secret world lurking beneath the surface.
The Strange Ones was an Official Selection at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, SXSW, and the Clermont Ferrand International Short Film Festival. The film won a Special Jury Prize at the Independent Film Festival of Boston for
Best Short Film 2011 and was the Short Narrative Jury Winner at the Hamptons International Film Festival 2011.
