The Lunch Date (Adam Davidson, 1989)



The Lunch Date (Adam Davidson, 1989)
Rating: 8.4

In this Oscar winning live action short film that takes on the look of a 1940s movie we are introduced to an upper class middle aged woman in Grand Central Station who is late for her train. After several encounters with African American homeless men, her judgmental callousness is revealed. Even after sharing a salad with a man who supposedly stole her salad and goes on to buy her a coffee, (although it is later revealed she just sat in the wrong booth), she still refuses to help another hungry homeless person in the final sequence.

You're right that she doesn't give him any money, but she also had no money. She lost her wallet; that's why she gives the waiter $1.52 for the $3 salad.

yeah, but she could have told him that, "i'm sorry, i don;t have any"
but she just rushed past without a word.
