New England actor, director and screenwriter Bill Doherty Jr.’s first short film, Love Hurts, has just premiered at the Boston International Film Festival. Doherty is already a seasoned actor, most recently starring in the films Donor and Smark.
Doherty’s short, Love Hurts, is a comedic action film about three lifelong friends who venture into a routine, clockwork hit involving a safe, a combination and their target. Of course nothing goes as planned and hilarious gangster mayhem ensues. Doherty says of his film, “think Goodfellas meets The Three Stooges. “
A movie about gangsters might not seem so funny, but Doherty insists that audience members will “fall in love, or at least care about these main characters despite their actions. They are just having fun doing their job. Who can’t appreciate that, right?”
