It’s a mixture of intense joy and searing pain. When Cupid’s arrow strikes, it’s most often an unexpected jolt that both opens your eyes and blinds you to everything. In Taron Lexton’s wildly sweet short film “Struck“, you get to see firsthand what a blow from Cupid’s arrow does to a person. Does it hurt? Yes, sometimes love can make us melancholy, depressed, or downright anti-social. But there are equally as beautiful joys when that love is returned. It desensitizes us to pain, filling us with a euphoria that, although it doesn’t last, leaves an impression upon us that we never forget.
Watch Struck for the Hollywood star cameos, like Kelly Preston, Jenna Elfman, and Nancy Cartwright, to name a few. Their star power makes it easy to see why this film was such a hit at festivals world wide. But, what really gets your attention is the imagery of Cupid’s arrow…you see how it effects every area of your life: eating, working, dating, interacting with others. Only until your true love is returned without any uncertainty can you begin to fire on all cylinders, so to speak. Have you been struck?
