Saucy Confessions in 'Serena', a Short Starring Jennifer Garner and Alfred Molina

What if I told you there was a new short film in which Jennifer Garner uses flamboyant lies and occasionally bawdy innuendo to attract the attentions of Alfred Molina as an increasingly exasperated priest?  You'd want to check that out, right?  After all, it's the erstwhile Elektra Natchios and Doc Ock sharing a confessional.

Garner and Molina star in Serena, a short clocking in at just under twelve minutes, during which Garner plays the title character, a woman who is running out her priest's patience, but for fascinating reasons.  Serena is written and directed by Rodrigo Garcia, the man behind last year's Oscar-nominated Albert Nobbs and episodes of the HBO series In Treatment and Six Feet Under.

It's the first short from WIGS, a YouTube channel co-founded by Garcia, John Avnet, and Jake Avnet.  A high-end content provider, WIGS is meant to appeal principally to a female audience, and has so far produced the YouTube series Jan, which stars Caitlin Gerard, Stephen Moyer, and Virgina Madsen.

Garcia said of his two stars, "Jennifer and Alfred were perfect. They elevated the script and found feeling and laughter where I had not seen it. I wish everything was this easy and fun."

Serena, which premeired online today, is the first in a series of ten short films that will star the likes of Michael C. Hall, Allison Janney, Walton Goggins, Maura Tierney, Jason Isaacs, Gary Cole, Jena Malone, Catherine O'Hara, America Ferrera, Dakota Fanning, Jane Kaczmarek, and Jennifer Beals.  So stay tuned to WIGS on YouTube for more shorts.
