A washed-up boxer gives a one-to-one lesson that changes his life forever.
A young man comes into a gym for a one-to-one boxing lesson with a washed up fighter, but finds himself in a confrontation that proves more than either man bargained for — and will change both their lives forever.
Director and writer Nick Flugge’s quirky comedy short employs deft writing and ace performances to explore masculinity in an offbeat, humorous way.
Dialogue is brought to vivid life with brisk pacing and crack comic timing, landing LOL-worthy one-liners while hinting at the deeper conflicts underlining both main characters and their interaction with one another. The two main actors play off one another beautifully, bringing both moments of doubt and humor and making for a pleasure to watch.
The premise of the film may be compact and limited to a precise time and place, but “The Hook” is able to tease out the internal conflicts and tension that often come with being a man — all while landing sharply drawn laughs.
