Me, You and Everyone We Know

Miranda July’s auspicious debut feature in which she also stars, ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW is a poetic observation on how people connect in an isolating and contemporary world. A charmingly original and astonishing vision, the film has won a clutch of prizes at recent film festivals including the Camera d’Or; the Critics Week Prize; and the Prix Regards Jeune at the recent Cannes Film Festival. ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW also won the Special Jury prize at this year’s Sundance film festival.

Richard Swersey (John Hawkes), a newly single shoe salesman and father of two boys, is prepared for amazing things to happen. But when the captivating and spontaneous Christine (Miranda July) enters his life, he panics. Christine is an artist and “Eldercab” driver who alternates between

heartbreak and faith as she weaves together reality and the fantastical in her art and life. Life is not so oblique for Richard’s 7 year-old Robby, who is having a risqu internet romance with a stranger, and his 14 year-old brother Peter, who becomes the guinea pig for neighbourhood girls practicing for their future or romance and marriage. In July’s modern world, the mundane is transcendent, and everyday people become radiant characters who speak their innermost thoughts, act on secret impulses, and experience truthful human moments that at times approach the surreal. They seek togetherness through tortuous routes and find redemption in the small moments that connect them to someone else on earth.

July’s is an occasionally melancholy but more often wondrous appreciation of the kind of everyday life we take for granted, a world full of rich and delicious characters. Miranda July is an acclaimed multimedia performance artist whose videos have been featured at institutions like MOMA and the Guggenheim Museum. July has also recorded several albums on indie rock labels and made her feature film acting debut in Alison Maclean’s “Jesus’ Son”

ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW will open in the UK on August 19th.
