"Some films not only necessitate a second viewing to wrap one's head around the subtle intricacies, but also cause you to beg for the opportunity to watch again. Writer/director Jay Pulk's short film Copper Penny is one of these."

"Watching this movie by Jay Pulk is like reading a perfect short story by one of the masters of the genre: a Raymond Carver, a Jhumpa Lahiri."

"I still can't believe it was only five minutes. It was one small scene of a desperately sad man's life, and worked out so perfectly in that five minutes, that it felt like it was a longer film than it was."

"..what feels like a simple variation of one of life's oldest stories is simmering underneath with a much deeper and more meaningful story."
