FOILED cover image
Foiled is a modern, relatable film with its main focus being on baseball cards. There is a clear, important theme and the plot takes twists you might not expect. If you want a contemporary short film that dives into important lessons, using a kid-friendly example, this film's for you.

Mike (Nikolai Kalajdzic) gets an ultra-rare baseball card signed by his and Dylan's (Ethan Jung) idol. With Dylan's begging, Mike reluctantly lets him borrow it for the day. When Dylan's brother, Cody (Jack Stasica) rips the card while trying to steal it from Dylan he and Dylan race against the clock to try to fix it so the rip isn't visible. After tons of plans gone wrong, the precious baseball card is in worse shape than it was before. What will the brothers do? Will Mike be forgiving or will this end much worse than it started?

The story is very well written. The main plot is strong and develops in way that isn't too predictable. I wish that some of the background characters could have had more interesting parts, as they didn't get to shine. The cinematography is well done. The sets and locations are pretty basic and suit the film. There are only a few locations, including a baseball dugout and a bedroom. The background music works very well. The characters are well developed. The actors give believable performances. The best part is the storyline and I applaud the writers for a great script. in this area.

The message in this film is that if you just tell the truth, it makes sticky situations a lot easier to deal with than if you don't.

I give Foiled 3.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 10, plus adults. Reviewed by Kyla C., KIDS FIRST!
