 2012 Heartland Film Festival: A-Z Reviews, Vol. 25 
Stronger (6 Mins., Narrative Short)

Directed by: Brian Lazzaro

Stronger is a breezy and effective six-minute short film about a talented violinist struggling to overcome high school bullying. His spirit is crushed when his treasured violin is destroyed, but a visit to an underground string trio inspires him to prove that no one will keep him from being true to himself.

Brian Lazzaro's Stronger is a timely and effective six-minute short film, and I appreciated Lazzaro's approach in painting his "victim" beyond the usual stereotypes and creating an involving story.
