“A very enjoyable film... a cracking short.”
Tom Huddleston ,Time Out
The Reward explores the moment of catharsis that unites two alienated New Yorker’s over the disappearance of Mr. Puggles, keep-fit-fanatic Felix’s run-away dog. Charlotte, a twenty-something with a temp job and no direction, crashes into Felix’s world when she and the lost Mr. Puggles have a tragic encounter.
Anatol Yusef (Boardwalk Empire, Last Orders, O Jerusalem, RSC) played the part of Felix & Charlotte was played by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (The Iron Lady, Albert Nobbs, The Cafe).
The Reward was produced in association with Sentinel Productions, DryWrite & VCL and shot entirely in New York. All post-production took place at Jump Editorial Services, NYC and Pinewood Studio, UK.
