In the short film, Steve, which was Rupert Friend’s directorial debut, Colin Firth plays a neighbor who asks for a cup of tea from the couple living upstairs, Keira Knightley and Tom Mison. Although Steve’s requests appear to be pleasant and run-of-the-mill, there is something lurking in Steve’s neediness.
