ABOUT THE FILM The Future USA/Germany | DIR Miranda July
CAST: Miranda July, Hamish Linklater, David Warshofsky, Isabella Acres, Joe Putterlik
In Miranda July's boldly imaginative second feature, a couple gives themselves the opportunity to explore a "what if" situation. What if Sophie and Jason could quit their jobs for 30 days and do the things that might actually be fulfilling to them? What if Sophie could choreograph a solo dance masterpiece and Jason could solve global warming by canvassing for an environmental cause? Fantasy blends with reality as their endeavors turn out to be less than fulfilling and each enters a realm of personal failure that inevitably leads to a crisis in their relationship. A film that could only come from July's incredibly unique perspective, The Future reveals the ways in which we can lose ourselves and each other.
