‘Nice Ride’ short film by Rose McIver: My Review


As I announced in a previous post, Rose‘s first short film as director, ‘Nice Ride‘ was available this weekend online (see the dedicated post).

Nice Ride (USA, 2019, 13 minutes)
Director: Rose McIver

In a small coastal town, two teenage cousins fantasize about their future together. When life pans out differently for each of them, the women try to navigate their relationship despite trauma and comparison. Underneath appearances is a complicated love that withstands more than either woman predicted.

My review

Wonderfully written and directed by Rose, this short film shows us two cousins ​​who plan their futures, their desires and are confronted with the fact that life does not always unfold as we imagined. The actresses, both adolescent and adult, brilliantly managed to make us feel their emotions.

I also very appreciated the choice of music at the end, which lent itself beautifully to the atmosphere and the feelings of the film.

Also, seeing Rose‘s name as director at the end had a special emotion for me. It’s a new step in her career and I’m so proud! I can’t wait to see what’s next for her. In the very end of the credits, special thanks were made for her family and her role model, Miranda Harcourt. That was a super cute note.

Cast and crew of this short film have made a fantastic job. Huge congratulations to everyone involved!

Some fans reviews

It was beautifully shot and in just the few minutes time it was able to make me feel something real, between these two friends.

My name is Stéphanie - creator, webmaster and social medias manager of The Rose McIver Fansite (known as Rose McIver Source). I have been a french fan of Rose since a decade. Way back in 2013, I noticed there were no French or English website supporting her projects or promoting her amazing work – that's why I decided to create this fansite, in English to reach a larger audience. I started following Rose in my early twenties, here I am in my thirties, even more enthusiastic to share everything related to her career.​ I had the opportunity to meet Rose three times. In May 2017, at the 'Fairy Tales 5' con in Paris. In February 2020, virtually during "Empire's Virtual Hangout 4". In May 2023, I went to Germany to meet Rose again.
