Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Resonates with intelligence and a poignancy."
‑ , Chicago Tribune
"Smart, serious and deftly composed."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"A terrific film that follows several interrelated New York stories and the people barely existing within them."
‑ Christopher Smith, Bangor Daily News (Maine)
"So packed with intriguing ideas that it's well worth seeing, even if it feels rather clinical and aloof."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"...populated by original characters that're almost always interesting to watch."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Without getting grand or preachy, the Sprechers use an unconventional approach to coax us into asking ourselves fundamental questions."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"Each of these stories has the potential for Touched by an Angel simplicity and sappiness, but Thirteen Conversations About One Thing, for all its generosity and optimism, never resorts to easy feel-good sentiments."
‑ Loren King, Chicago Tribune
"Poignant, touching, and in moments deeply philosophical, Sprecher's second feature is most interesting."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Playfully wavers on the meaning of true happiness, the notion of karma and luck, and the possibility of hope."
‑ Mark Sells, Oregon Herald
"A dry, dim-looking film that's more about clever structure than meaningful stories."
‑ Joshua Tanzer, Offoffoff
"Often messy and frustrating, but very pleasing at its best moments, it's very much like life itself."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"lends higher philosophical and spiritual tone ... without preaching"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"Clea DuVall again shows why she's one of Hollywood's most under-rated actresses"
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Deposita suas energias nos entrecruzamentos de seus personagens e se esquece de que, teoricamente, deveria girar em torno das visões destes sobre o mundo."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Fractured, flowing ensemble piece has a heart of true, sincere humanity -- and two brilliant performances."
‑ James Rocchi, Netflix
