Please Stand By

Director:

When is a film that has scenes with Kirk and Spock not a Star Trek movie? Well . . . when it’s a film about a young woman writing an epic screenplay for a Star Trek contest.

“People have their own lives, and after a while, those lives don't include you.”

When is a film that has scenes with Kirk and Spock not a Star Trek movie? Well . . . when it’s a film about a young woman writing an epic screenplay for a Star Trek contest. A lack of knowledge about or love for Star Trek shouldn’t be a barrier to watching Please Stand By.

This is the second film adapted from a play on this season of Trailer Rewind. It’s also the second film this season to feature an atypical main character. The result is another enjoyable gem.
