Directed by Miranda July • 2011 • Germany, United States
Starring Miranda July, Hamish Linklater, David Warshofsky
Born out of her roots in experimental theater, Miranda July’s follow-up to her breakout indie hit ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW stars the filmmaker and Hamish Linklater as a directionless couple living in a state of deferred adulthood whose decision to adopt a dying cat triggers an unexpected existential crisis that jolts them out of their malaise. With her inimitable ability to blend flights of whimsical fantasy with piercing emotional insight, July weaves an audacious tale of time bending, talking cats, and sentient T-shirts that yields complex truths about the human condition.
