Finding KateA few years ago, Loving Annabelle’s writer/ director Katherine Brooks made a short film that is essentially the story of how she lost her virginity. Growing up in small town Louisiana, Kate admired her older cousin Victoria, who had married and escaped to a different life. One day Victoria shows up to a family wedding, and the film is the story of that night.

A very young Erin Kelly (Loving Annabelle) plays 17-year-old Kate at the wedding reception. When she sees Victoria (Jessica Lancaster), she quickly drops her boyfriend’s hand to go talk to her cousin. The two flirt and end up in the pool together, their eyes dancing until they kiss. The next morning, it’s clear that they have spent the night together.

Although made available directly from Katherine Brooks for a short time, the dvd is no longer for sale. Some shaky hand held camera work, but it’s a heartfelt ten minute short. (AB)
