Synopsis by Mark Deming
A couple whose marriage is faltering has taken to looking at life from very different perspectives in this short animated comedy. Madge (voice of Rayyah McCaul) and Walter (voice of Nigel Anthony) have been together for years and the spark is entirely gone from their relationship. The emotional gulf between them is reflected in their unusual living arrangement -- Madge has taken to living on the ceilings of their house, while Walter has claimed the floors. As the two constantly squabble over who is up and who is down, a reminder of their happier past encourages them to seek common ground. Written and directed by Timothy Reckart, Head Over Heels was nominated for a 2013 Academy Award as Best Animated Short Subject.
