“Drifting” (2020) Paul Mescal stars in this Irish short film about two lifelong friends drifting apart

I’ve read it’s a terrific short film and it’s almost become mythical amongst Mescalites because it’s nowhere to be seen. Covid derailed its big premiere at the Dublin Film Festival, forcing it to be premiered online. It’s nowhere to be seen now. Only the trailer exists, with many wanting to see the short film after Paul’s rise.

If anyone finds it online, please share.

You're doing an excellent job proving that I can come to dislike an actor without ever having seen their work.

I've been on DL for over a decade, and this is the first time I've complained to an OP about over posting a topic. Well, maybe I made a made a comment or two about the Ryan O'Neal extremist, but now I would give another $19 to bring back the Ryan O'Neal posts and trade him for this Paul Pescal nonsense.

You may need to seek help, OP.

R2 but you posted you saw Aftersun. You were all over that thread.

We all hate this fucking freak, R2.

Every one of us.

I have it. Like most short films (not all, but most) it’s really nothing. It’s just about two guys who’ve been friends their entire lives and one wants to move to Australia and start new to do something with his life while the other seems to never wanna grow or change.

Its selling point is that it has Paul Mescal (who filmed this while filming Normal People but it wasn’t released until after that became a hit and he gained an audience).

I will upload it.

R7 what’s more disturbing than her daily posts is you keeping count of them.

R9 can’t tell a bad photoshop job when he sees it.

R8 "what’s more disturbing than her daily posts is you keeping count of them."

You just click on OP's user name and see all threads he/she/it/they has/have opened. And those few seconds spend on it are certainly not more disturbing than OP's obsession. 42 threads on Paul Mescal ) - not 80 - so R7 clearly wasn't counting them.

R2 has rheumatoid OAP wrists, it's hard for her to scroll past anything she despises. What a wretched life.

Love love Paul. Thank you, OP, for keeping up the update about him!

Creating threads and posting BOY pix of Mescal is sick. You aren't helping your fan base. Post away.

R12 I don’t understand why that user doesn’t grasp that he can scroll by the post. He doesn’t have to comment.

R13 her post about him as a kid wasn’t sexual or wrong. It’s a photo that is online already. You making it into some dark sexual thing when it wasn’t says everything about you, not them.

R16 I really enjoy him. He has a great presence, a likable aura to him on top of talent.

Our dear Paul is not feeling well right now. It was reported by a fellow fan.

by Anonymousreply 18April 20, 2023 7:41 AM

He saw your threads and attempted suicide.

He’s so talented. ❤️
