I saw this one because Joel Hopkins follow-up film is so good.
31 March 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

In 2001, Joel Hopkins made a very charming, offbeat film "Jump Tomorrow". I loved the picture and when I saw that it was based on a prior short film, I knew I had to see it. Sadly, I forgot about this and a decade later I finally got around to seeing "Jorge". Like "Jump Tomorrow", this one stars Tunde Adebimpe as George and the same kernel of a story is there...though the film is VERY different from "Jump Tomorrow" and I recommend you see them both.

George is a very shy and awkward guy. One day on the way to work he meets a pretty young lady when she notices a ladybug* crawling and pulls it off. When he arrives at work, he's surprised to see this same lady...she's the new temp. And, through the course of the short film, George longs for this lady but because of his shyness you wonder if he'll EVER get around to asking her out on a date!

This is enjoyable and well handled...but "Jump Tomorrow" is even better. See them both...especially as I love Adebimpe's performance. Very likable...both him and the film.

*Whoever wrote the summary on IMDb must be British, as they called the insect a 'ladybird'...and Americans call it a 'ladybug' instead.
