For a first draft, I was impressed with “Sadie.” There are some problems with it though. The dialogue is a bit silted and the ending was unrealistic for the gravity of the story. A woman felt wrong by life, in particular, abuse from a co-worker.
The formatting and concept is fine. You’re missing a missing a cover page.

However, I do believe you have a good short story that at times made the hair on the back of my neck curl. All the best!

I can tell immediately this is a 'real' person... read
A review of You Deplete Meby **DELETED ACCOUNT** on 10/20/2013The acting is stellar. I like that one scene carries most of the dialogue into the other shots. I would try and level out the audio on the jump-cuts; but those are very creative and fit well in the story. I would watch for inconsistencies in the continuity - I saw some disappearing booze bottles in the background. I love the bottle turning upside down in the final line and... read
