For this week's Sunday in Shorts we uncovered the Academy Award nominated film The Crush. Who among us didn't have a crush on one of our teachers growing up. But this film takes the story line of an innocent crush a couple of steps farther than most of our realities. It was written and directed by first-timer Michael Creagh who cast his eight-year-old son Oran in the lead role of the story.

Here's a quick synopsys: Oran's character falls in love with his teacher, Miss Purdy. But heartbreak abounds when he bumps into Miss Purdy and her boyfriend having just bought a very real engagement ring. Devastated and spurned, the boy challenges Miss Purdy’s fiancé to a duel – to the death!
