But during a freak storm, a mysterious Rainbow Rock, which grants wishes to anyone who finds it, falls from the sky. Suddenly, the neighborhood that Toe already thinks is weird is about to get a lot weirder. As the Rainbow Rock ricochets around the town—from kid to kid and parent to parent—wishes-come-true quickly turn the neighborhood upside down in a wild rampage of everything from tiny aliens to giant boogers. From Robert Rodriguez, director of “Spy Kids,” comes a magical fantasy adventure told through a series of shorts that each brings to life the sometimes wonderful, often terrible, and totally out-of-control wishes that become far more than Toe and his neighbors ever imagined. “Shorts” stars Jon Cryer, William H. Macy, Leslie Mann, James Spader, Jimmy Bennett, Kat Dennings, Trevor Gagnon, Devon Gearhart, Leo Howard, Rebel Rodriguez, Jake Short and Jolie Vanier. Written and directed by Rodriguez, the film is produced by Rodriguez and Elizabeth Avellán, with Dan Lin, Hunt Lowry, Mohammed Khalaf and Edward Borgerding serving as executive producers. As he often does, Rodriguez serves as his own director of photography, editor, visual effects supervisor and composer on the film. ‘Shorts’ opens in Irish cinemas everywhere on August 21st VIEW THE TRAILER HOW TO ENTER THE COMPETITION Simply answer the following question and click here to submit your answer.
