Or rather, what could possibly go right in this scenario? It’s hard enough being a teenager in love without major complications, like having a nutty, disapproving family... or being stuck in orbit, only catching a glimpse of your dream girl when your paths happen to cross in space.

Jamie Magnus Stone’s Orbit Ever After is a couple of years old, but it was new to us, and is now widely viewable on YouTube channel Dust. Also, it’s rather charming—despite its rather poignant ending—with very clever production design and a lovelorn lead performance by Thomas Brodie-Sangster, a.k.a. Jojen Reed from Game of Thrones.
