After a night of bad sex, Lily decides to use magic to educate her new boyfriend, Brian. She brews an enchanted pumpkin spice latte and by drinking it Brian learns some hard truths about empathy, consent, and just who exactly he’s dating.

BASIC WITCH is a pretty interesting short film. Starting with comedic intents, and being classified as comedy, it explores the important matter of consent. The plot explores a significant kind of conversation that should take place between couples, but is rarely discussed. It is more of a dark comedy that a classic funny short film. Well acted, could’ve been more incisive but is definitely worth a watch.
