Miranda July reinforces her distinctive cinematic voice in her sophomore feature about a 30-something couple at a crossroads after deciding to adopt a cat.
The lives of 30-something couple Jason (Hamish Linklater) and Sophie (Miranda July) are on an (un)easy cruise control when they decide to adopt a wounded cat Paw-Paw (playfully voiced by July). The adoption process is delayed and in this discreet window of time (thirty days), Jason and Sophie are plunged into a seemingly new world full of action, doubt, contemplation and reckless abandon.
In her follow-up to 2005’s Me and You and Everyone We Know, Miranda July delivers a film brimming with absurdity, abstraction and revelation. The film made its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in 2011 and screened in competition at the Berlin International Film Festival.
