Synopsis

Sophie and Jason have decided to adopt a cat, but the shelter won’t release it for a month. So they decide to live life as if the world were about to end… leading to quitting their jobs, door-to-door solicitation, creative confusion, adultery, conversations with the moon, and stopping time.

Our take

A film fully realized by writer-director and star Miranda July (also an accomplished author and artist), this sophomore feature is telescopic and microscopic, balancing both the personal and universal. A hugely ambitious sci-fi-hybrid steeped in metaphor, as well a touching, human romantic drama.
