Player 2 is an animated short that tells the story of two brothers growing apart and how video games play a major role in keeping their relationship together.
The film does a great job in creating a level of nostalgia for audiences with it’s constant references to vintage video games and emotionally touching music. It tells the common story (for those who have siblings) of how circumstances can cause relationships to change in families.
The animation style is unique and reminiscent of a moving painting. Player 2 is a film that thinks about the small details. A great effort!
