Watch: Kate Trefry's Short Film 'How To Be Alone' with Maika Monroe

"One woman's simple, three-step guide to surviving a night on your own." A must watch short film straight from the SXSW Film Festival earlier this month. How To Be Alone is the first short film directed by writer Kate Trefry, who works as a staff writer for Netflix's "Stranger Things" and co-wrote the other short Souls of Totality. How To Be Alone stars actress-on-the-rise Maika Monroe as a woman who has to survive the night when her husband, played by Joe Keery from "Stranger Things", leaves to go work the late shift. "It isn't particularly scary per se, though it is a gorgeous film filled with incredibly creepy imagery, but instead it shines as a thoughtful character examination of a young woman in a crisis of identity." This one hell of a short, so much ingenuity and so much in her mind, wrapped around a cool concept for a short. Check it out.
