With the compassionate, startling 2005 comedy Me and You and Everyone We Know, the talented Miranda July (The Future) reveals a world both familiar and strange-an original vision of creativity, sexuality, childhood, and loneliness through a series of braided vignettes around a pair of potential lovers: Richard, a newly single shoe salesman and father of two (John Hawkes, Martha Marcy May Marlene), and Christine, a lonely video artist and “Eldercab” driver (July).
While they take hesitant steps toward romance, Richard’s sons follow their own curiosity toward their first sexual experiences, online and in real life, venturing into uncharted territories in their attempts to connect with others.
Playful and profoundly transgressive, Me and You and Everyone We Know is a poetic look at the tortuous routes we take to intimacy in an isolating world, and the moments of magic and redemption that unite us.
