Short Film: Mail Order

I'm not entirely certain how to classify "Mail Order."  You could call it science fiction or romance, but the truth is it's mostly just creepy as hell.  This silent film is the story of a man who receives a living doll in the mail.  He poses her, he grooms her, and then, he falls in love with her... maybe.  The emotional landscape of a man who orders a woman through the mail is a bit unclear, but it helps if you tell yourself that the whole film is a game played by a loving, consenting couple one Sunday afternoon.
"A lonely man purchases a love-doll online, coming in the form of a dedicated actress. Things get weird quick."
