When Downton Abbey beauty meets this man, what happens next?

It starts like a really good horror movie. A beautiful actress (Michelle Dockery from Downton Abbey) goes into her home in a downpour and unloads her groceries. A disfigured man, watching in the darkened street outside , gets out of his car, walks purposefully towards the door, and knocks.

So what happens next? Could it be that your prejudice is showing? This short film was made for for the U.K. charity Changing Faces ("Changing the way you face disfigurement") by DDB and director Jim Wheedon. The disfigured man is burn victim Leo Gormley.

The film, which does have a rather unexpected ending, will be shown in Odeon cinemas across the U.K. Tell us what you think. Have they made their point?
