An Imaginary Friend Considers Retirement When His Creator Starts to Grow Up

In the short film So You’ve Grown Attached, Ex is the only person that moody kid Izzy likes, and he’s not really person—he’s her imaginary friend. But now that Izzy is getting older, Ex’s boss is encouraging him to retire. Ex is reluctant to leave Izzy’s side, but is he just holding her back?


Kate Tsang wrote and directed So You’ve Grown Attached, which has been making the rounds at the short film festivals. Ex may not be the best companion for a pre-teen girl, but as an adult, I wouldn’t mind hanging out and throwing peanut butter and jelly stars with him.
