Miranda July's 'The Future' out tomorrow

 In > art culture design

Artist, writer and filmmaker, Miranda July‘s highly anticipated second feature hits French screens tomorrow. July’s directorial debut Me, You and Everyone We Know received huge critical acclaim and took four prizes at Cannes back in 2006, including the prestigious Golden Camera. The Future, which she writes, directs and stars in, focuses on a couple in LA (July and Hamish Linklater) who adopt a stray cat, resulting in a radical change in perspective on life, literally altering the course of time and space and testing their faith in each other and themselves. In an attempt to reach their ambitions, the couple embark on a 30 day challenge: quit their jobs, the internet, their phones and see what the universe has to offer. What follows is a surreal journey, narrated by Paw Paw, the rescued cat, who watches over the couple as they struggle to fulfil their creative potential, faced with the endless possibilities of life. The film’s shrewd observational nature matched by some quick-witted scriptwriting from July, make this the must-see film of the summer. (FT)
