I watched a short film some days ago. It’s an Irish live action short film called The Crush. It won Best Irish Short award at the 23rd Foyle Film Festival and was nominated for the Academy Award for Live Action Short Film at the 83rd Academy Awards in 2011.

It’s the story of Ardal Travis, an eight year old boy who has a crush on his teacher Ms Purdy. He shows his affections by giving her a toy ring, but a few days later while shopping with his mother, Ardal bumps into his teacher and her boyfriend. Ms Purdy happily explains that she has just been proposed to by her boyfriend and shows them her engagement ring.
