Life in Text, A Short Film About a Relationship Told Backwards Using Text Messages

Life in Text is a short film by Los Angeles filmmaker Laurence Jacobs that tells the story of a relationship from its bitter end to its tender beginnings using text messages. It stars Tyler Ritter and Alexandra Daddario.

Nostalgia sets in for a 20-something guy (Tyler Ritter), as he travels through a virtual text message world and revisits old messages between him and his ex-girlfriend (Alexandra Daddario). The digital drama begins at the end of the couple’s history, when they are no longer speaking, and ends at the beginning of their relationship: their first text message.
