My girl crush on Miranda July continues with the release of new self-written and directed film 'The Future'. Sophie (Miranda July) and Jason (Hamish Linklater) are two individuals entwined in a relationship despite the fact that for years they've managed to veer away from commitment and responsibility.
This and their perspective on life changes radically when they decide to adopt a stray cat. Doing so literally alters the course of time and tests their faith, in each other and individually. The story unfolds, narrated by Paw Paw the rescue cat and in typical July fashion, is a breathtakingly fearless portrait of the human condition. As with a lot of her work the mundane aspects of life become fascinating and something to delve deeper into.
