This is the first movie by performance artist Miranda July. I caught the last showing here in LA last night at the Nuart.

It was an amazing and beautiful film.

It stars Miranda July essentially as herself... a performance artist and John Hawkes (Sol Star on Deadwood) as a recently separated shoe salesman who is falling apart.
It also features a brillant little boy named Brandon Ratcliff as one of his sons.

It's about people trying to make connections in the modern world.

Find out when it is playing and go see it.

Brad Douriff ( Doc Cochrane from Deadwood ) was in the audience and sat right behind me. I thought it was sweet that he was checking out Hawke's movie.
I wanted to ask him about season 3... but I chickened out.

Now that the movie is in wider release I thought a bump would be permissable.

Risking the wrath of the mods by bumping this. I just saw this on DVD. On one level it was a neat little "slice of life" flick. Nothing horrible or revelatory happened. On the other hand it was a total mindf*ck. What was up with those girls? Where were they when I was in high school?

Weird movie, though enjoyable. I think Miranda July is totally hot!

I probably could have lived without the "back and forth" deal, but it was quite an interesting film--quirky, daring, odd. I loved that little boy, too. Great scene between him and the woman when they finally discover each other's true identity, not to mention age!

I Netflixed it a while back. Pretty good movie. On the "Happiness" tip but not as over-the-top disturbing.

One of the posters here has/had that ))<>(( in his sig. Creeped me out when I figured out what it was :)
