Stanley (2000)

Suzie Templeton will intrigue audiences with her darkly comic film Stanley. While his wife wreaks violence and death in the kitchen, Stanley finds life and love in a cabbage he is growing in his barren back yard.
This short features just two human puppets and shows deep feeling and melancholy.

It's her first work and every element is already perfect. The background is delivered so well it's amazing. The final punch line is a bit subtle but up till then it's all sublime. Little details, little expressions, little movements tell so much about the inner feelings.
