review by
Mike Haberfelner

Restaurant manager Mike (Jeffrey Johnson) has only recently discovered a comicbook called Captain Black, and has become quite fascinated by it. So when he's invited to a halloween party, he doesn't have to think twice about his costume ... Captain Black. At this party, he meets a girl in a Kitt Vixxen outfit (Georgia Norman) - and Kitt Vixxen is of course Captain Black's sidekick. The two are pretty much naturally attracted to one another (or maybe just each other's outfits), retire to the garage and have sex. Now Mike tries to get her number after sex, but she's not even willing to give him her name, for her it was just anonymous cosplay sex. The next days, Mike makes some investigations as to the identity of the girl, but to no avail, no one seems to know her ... until she rather by chance shows up at the restaurant - with her parents (Robert Maffia, Lauren Campedelli) and brother (Dylan Lawson), celebrating her birthday. It takes a while for her to even recognize him, and she gives him her name - Maria - rather by mistake ... but when she tells him she has just turned 17, this pretty much shocks him blind. And no, she didn't look that young in her outfit and makeup, as everybody confirms to Mike. He somehow manages to get his hands on her number, arranges a meeting to talk things over ... and has to find out she's pregnant from their little fling. And that pretty much throws his life out of balance, as he can't think of any way for this story to end but bad - unless he finds the Captain Black-like inner strength in himself ...


A charming little film that manages to combine comedy with drama rather seamlessly, with the inclusion of superhero and cosplay elements coming across as unforced, and the movie's rather sensitive central issue is treated in a very sensible way without pointing fingers. And like- or at least relatable performances and a directorial effort that's visually strong without overdoing it help make this a very enjoyble movie.
