Watch Islands’ Nick Thorburn In Sarah Ramos’ New Super Deluxe Short

Sarah Ramos is best-known to most people for playing Hattie Braverman on Parenthood but best-known around here as a former Videogum contributor. Recently, Ramos found a script for a romantic comedy that she wrote when she was 12. And recently, Super Deluxe had the bright idea to make an actual production out of it. Islands frontman (and former Unicorn) Nick Thorburn has a pretty prominent role as a doctor. There’s a part where he and Ramos go on a date to McDonalds and rap Despot’s “House Of Bricks” together. Check out the first two parts below.

I have definitely seen worse writing in bigger-budget movies than this.
