Idris Elba’s Directorial Debut Is A Short Film About ’70s Funk, Soccer, and Nerd Love [VIDEO]

Submitted For Your Approval

I think my favorite part of Idris Elba’s short film Unstoppable, a collaboration with World Cup sponsor Pepsi, is that in the final scene, after Nerd Boy’s taken Nerd Girl’s glasses off and told her “Your eyes look beautiful”… her glasses are back on. I assume Elba cut the scene where Nerd Girl explains that she actually needs her glasses to see, plus the whole “female nerd takes off her glasses and suddenly OMG she’s pretty!” trope is both stupid and extremely tired. That’s how the nerd girls I know behave.
