A new collection of short films hits theaters around the country tonight, featuring a prize collection of funny, heartfelt, and suspenseful shorts starring some of our favorite actors. ShortsHD presents Stars in Shorts, a collection of seven short films featuring the likes of Lily Tomlin, Jessie Tyler Ferguson, Colin Firth, Judi Dench, Keira Knightley, Julia Stiles, and Jason Alexander. Following the theatrical release, Stars in Shorts will be available on iTunes and cable pay-per-view outlets beginning October 9.
While the collection is a varied set of stories, perhaps the funniest short features out actors Lily Tomlin and Jesse Tyler Ferguson as a mother and son who are guilted into attending a funeral for a stranger, then find themselves inadvertently leading the motorcade in The Procession. The short is full of laugh-out-loud moments, whether it's Tomlin proclaiming that when her husband dies, she's going to hire "a weeping hooker" to attend his funeral, or Ferguson unsuccessfully trying to manage his mother's neuroses and biting critiques while the two are held captive in the car.
Other shorts include Judi Dench starring as an older woman desperately trying to navigate the social networking and online dating scene in Friend Request Pending, Julia Stiles in a standout performance as a woman dissatisfied with her relationship with a married man in Sexting, and Keira Knightley and Colin Firth costarring in the intriguingly quirky Steve.
