Sex! intrigue! Canada! Hungarian political refugees living in Canada directing films about young Canadian woman who find themselves pregnant in the summer of 1964! This must-see short has it all!

Directed by George Kaczender (a Hungarian political refugee living in Canada) Phoebe is the story of Phoebe, a beautiful young Canadian woman who finds herself pregnant in the summer of 1964. Filmed in glorious black and white against a backdrop of exotic greater Toronto beaches and traffic-free roadways, Kaczender (a Hungarian political refugee living in Canada) takes us inside the mind of Phoebe as she comes to grips with the reality of her situation.

This is the strangest, wackiest, coolest, sweetest, “What the heck is going oniest? After School Special you have ever seen!

Let the capable riffing of Bridget and Mary Jo lovingly guide you through all 28 minutes of this teen pregnancy hormone fueled event. They will help you figure out where exactly in relation to the beach is the abandoned house? How do Phoebe's while slacks stay so clean? Who are the strange top hatted dancers on the beach? And what’s the deal with Paul?

* Extra credit essay question: Discuss the cultural impact Hungarian Political refugee filmmakers living in Canada have had on feminism in the Northwest Territories.

Is it just me or are these getting a little more expensive? Like, maybe too much now? I know the longer ones are more, generally, but I can't really justify paying more than $2 or so for something like this, even RiffTrax.

Sorry guys. Time for... COST CONTAINMENT!

I assume that the price is due to it being longer than most shorts, since it sounds like a half-hour thing for TV.

Yup. This one clocks in at 28 minutes, so they charged a tiny bit more, just like the last half-hourish short.

I refuse to believe that there is any version of the multiverse this short seems to take place in where that guy could convince a girl to have sex with him.

This was better than a later entry into the Kaczender filmography - Your Ticket is No Longer Valid, which is a 90-minute opus dedicated to Richard Harris' inability to perform. If it wasn't for the nudity, and sex scenes that make The Room's seem erotic, I'd recommend that for a future riffing.
