Watch "Pennies" - a short film starring Amy Adams

Great news - you can now watch the short movie "Pennies" starring Amy Adams below. Thanks a million to Matthew Grant who directed/produced this short film and gave us all the information we needed. Matthew and Amy's boyfriend Darren also appear in it. Production on "Pennies" started in 2002 and finished in 2003, but wasn't released until 2006. Eventually it aired on Comcast Cable after being in several film festivals. Enjoy and please leave a comment to let us know what you think of "Pennies"!

With special thanks to Mac Prescott ;-)

very interesting short film...thanks for sharing..

the guy who gave all his money to Amy at the end of the movie,that is Darren,her boyfriend?

Stephany said...

Good guess. It is Darren Le Gallo, Amy's boyfriend.

Cynthia said...

Amy's brother co-wrote it!

Thanks for the vid!

Stephany said...

Eddie Adams also appears in "Pennies" - he's listed as "Customer #1" on IMDB. Does anybody know how to identify him? I tried without success, haha.

Thanks so much Steph, great work. Overall it was pretty interesting, Amy was great and I thought the writing was really good too. The music was kinda cheesy though and some of the camera stuff was weird but really cool vid.

It was interesting, many back and forth twists. Did those guys ever get their 17 brownies? lol

JEE said...

hahha yes did those guys ever get those brownies?

Thanks for this, Steph! :) Interesting storyline and Amy as usual brought magic to a character.

And OMG, that's so Darren!

OF said...

LOL that was interesting. I dont get it though, why was shegoing to get shot then? If it wasnt something 'scary' I guess you could say, then why did that girl come in with the gun O.o thats what confused me. Overall it was pretty interesting and Amy was really good :)


*** I think her brother is the lighter haired guy when Amy mixed up their orders and she was talking to the short guy.

oh my....like to see Amy, but it wasn't the greatest script. Anyway, I was VERY surprised with the end, I thought the girl was taken away from her somehow and she had to pay for it, something like that. So it was kind o cute that all of this was just to make her daughter happy. I like this message.

THANK you Steph, you always come up with great stuff. Have you ever met Amy? Cuz you always know so much of where and who to contact to get information about her.

@ OF
I think amy lost the money as a climax of the story. After all that hard work you can lose is in seconds. Then Darren appears as the "deus ex machina" (An event that solves everything, look it up at wiki) to solve all her problems by giving her all the money she needs. Just my opinion :D

Perhaps this short film seems "scattered" because too many characters/customers were introduced. I don't think the script was bad. The film just felt a little loose & had a unique surprise in the end.

Amy was good. Darren Le Gallo was a delicious hero. And just like Of, my guess is Eddie Adams was the light-haired customer in a dark blue shirt. Just my guess :)

Dumb. Worse than a student film. What a waste of talent for Adams.

I thought the script was very mature, just the film was very low budget style lol. Amy Adams .. great performance once again, she made it all work.

Waitress: Do these look like coffee cups to you?
Mr. Tinker: They're smaller.

LOL! That line still gets me.

Definately not the best film I have seen. The whole plot was a bit rubbish to be honest. I really expected better of Amy.

I cant believe the amount of people listed in the credits! I could have done that with my handycam!

I was glad i finally found this small movie, i was watching every thing that amy ever made, but i couldn't find pennies anywhere, it was a relief to find it. Really i love amy admas so much, she is one of the best actresses i have seen, she can play almost any role with absolute profession, also I think she is the second most beautiful woman alive.
The idea of the movie a nice, except for that guy who hit on her, that part shouldn't have been there, anyway thanks stephanie.

And thank you amy

Whomever said they could have done that with their handycam has no idea the work that was involved to make this. Wondering if anyone knew if there was a better quality version out there. As someone who was part of the crew It would be nice. Considering this was shot on 35mm, was hoping to see better version of this. Thanks Kevin P
