Despite a million heartaches, I'm still a sucker for love-at-first-sight and love-against-all-odds stories. Kismet Diner is the perfect example: A waitress sings songs to a patron she has a crush on, but he always ignores her advances. Or does he? Watch it. I'm sure you're going to like it—but get some Kleenex ready.

(But don't watch it if you just got your heart broken recently, because then it will suck. Or not. I don't know. There's always hope for all of us.)

Directed by Mark Nunneley, Kismet Diner won the Manhattan Short Festival and a Cannes Silver Lion.
