This is perhaps one of my strangest and most beautifully depressing finds on Vimeo lately.

Actor Aidan Gillen, known for his portrayal of the ever-deceiving Lord Petyr Baelish on Game of Thrones, meanders through the seemingly fantastical English countryside in this short film by Nick Abrahams. The soft lullaby tones of Ekki Múkk by Sigur Rós weave in and out of the narrative like thoughtfully woven threads creating the fabric of the story, which itself is reminiscent of a darkly-British Snow White.

Though the idea is simple, the subtext throughout the entire video resonates through anyone who has ever felt boundaries constricting their curiosity. In other words, lost.
