June is a struggling ukelele player, Friday is her talkative roommate. Also, Friday is a dog...
"...one of the most exquisite short films to come out of Austin in ages... you've never seen anything quite like (it)... (T. Lynn Mikeska gives) a tour de force performance... At a tight nine minutes, 'Friday and June' eloquently articulates, with equal parts humor and heartache, an unnameable cri de coeur that nevertheless should be instantly recognizable to anyone who's ever chased an artistic dream, stumbled, got back up, and grabbed hold even harder than before. It's that good."
Marc Savlov, The Austin Chronicle
"There’s a strong streak of melancholia running through Friday and June that really makes the film absolutely endearing. The premise of pairing a ukulele player and a puppet would seem to anticipate a screwball comedy, but even though there are some very funny parts to the film, it really plays more like a heartwarming drama."
Mike Everleth, Bad Lit
"This was a big favorite of mine on the festival circuit last year. It’s short, funny, poignant, heartfelt, and other adjectives that mean 'wonderful.'"
