‘Flawed’ is nothing less than a beautiful gift from Andrea Dorfman’s vivid imagination, a charming little film about very big ideas.

Dorfman has the uncanny ability to transform the intensely personal into the wisely universal. In 'Flawed' she deftly traces her encounter with a potential romantic partner, questioning her attraction and the uneasy possibility of love. But, ultimately,'Flawed' is less about whether girl can get along with boy than whether girl can accept herself, imperfections and all. In many ways, 'Flawed'is both an exquisite tribute to the art of animation and a loving homage to storyboarding, a time-honoured way of rendering scenes while pointing the way to the dramatic arc of the tale.
