Storyline

Lawrence Jefferies is a guy who's found the flow in his life; he knows how to trust his gut and follow his instincts. Driven by a loving curiosity and strong sense of adventure, he lives his life with a freedom and confidence most men envy. Hugh Greerey, by contrast, lives under the influence of his self-consciousness, struggling to connect to a deeper sense of who he really is. There is a power and intensity to Hugh's spirit which he fights to hold in check until the two meet by happenstance and a defining moment between them opens one into his humanity and propels the other into his soul. Written by Bridget O'Rourke

Simply remarkable acting
5 July 2018 | by furrydad-90427See all my reviews

Like a short story, a short film has a lot to do in a very little time. This leads to sometimes sharp turns that leave the viewer running to catch up. "13 or so" not only tells a beautiful tale, but skillfully gives you life stories of two men in less than 13 minutes.

What really shines here is the acting. The facial expressions, emotions turning on a dime, dialogue that is more emotion than narrative, the hesitancy, the clear searching for words and meaning, makes the movie seem absolutely real. I have no idea how many takes these actors had to do to get this remarkable movie, but it was worth all of your work.

Whether the theme appeals to you or not is not why you should watch this. You should watch it to see two absolutely remarkable and yes, "amazing" actors.

Thank you all for a wonderful film.
