Editorial Reviews

Award-winning and critically acclaimed, Me You and Everyone We Know, is a poetic and penetrating look at how everyday people struggle to connect with one another in an isolating modern world. Christine Jesperson (writer/director Miranda July) is a struggling artist and cab driver who uses her talents and imagination to draw her dreams and objects of desire. One such object is Richard Swersey (John Hawkes, TV's "Deadwood"), a newly-single father of two boys who is hoping for amazing things, yet panics upon meeting the captivating Christine. But in a world where the mundane is transcendent and people seek meaningful connections despite the risk, anything magical can happen - and well - happen.

This film is not for everyone and I appreciate the insights in some of the negative reviews. However, it would be unfortunate if such reviews put off viewers to who might otherwise connect with the film. I will try to offer a more successful reading.

The movie's most self-referential scene involves the playful conversation between the two lead characters as they walk to their respective cars. In offering their respective interpretations of the walk, they each take chances by playing a game at the risk that the other will not play along. It is precisely this vulnerability of the characters that makes the characters so endearing and the main narrative so romantic. By taking the risks and playing along with the conversation, they each reveal to the other a common openness to a shared way of relating to the world. By extension, through the entire film Miranda July takes risks, asking the viewer "this is game that I am playing, are you willing to play along?"

A less central but significant scene recognizes that not everyone is willing to play along. An awkward and unsuccessful conversation in the intimate setting of a female character's bathroom between two recently separated characters presents them as each good and decent individuals who simply cannot connect with one another successfully. I take this sympathetic representation of the separated wife as one of the most admirable dimensions of the film. It celebrates the playful artistic stance of the two main characters, the quality that brings them together and allows them to connect, while respecting the alternative ways that other characters relate to the world around them.

This is one of my favorite movies of all time. I love the soundtrack and imagery. Miranda July is great. It's very eccentric, but still appeals to most audiences. There are some adult themed topics, but the entire movie is very whimsical.

Self-consciously "arty" at every turn, it's easy to see why many people love "Me and You and Everyone We Know"--but it's just as easy for me to see why people also loathe this film. Performance artist Miranda July has fashioned a piece about urban disconnect and lost souls and has populated it with quirky characters and outlandish situations. And while many compare the tone of the film to a Todd Solondz picture, to me it doesn't have quite the same brash in-your-face entertainment style. July's piece is quieter and more contemplative.

"Quirky" has become the new curse on the indie film scene. There are an abundance of films that work with outlandish character types--we're supposed to be instantly charmed. But for all the films that utilize this formula, few are really successful (for me, two diverse examples would be Solondz's "Happiness" or even "Junebug"). And while July doesn't quite reach those heights, there is still plenty to be admired in her first effort.

One very smart choice is that everything is underplayed! The situations aren't particularly believable, but the feelings elicited from them have a truth and sweetness. I used the phrase "finding the realness in unreality" in another review, and I think it's apt here too. While I didn't believe many of the plot points were realistic, there was still a thoughtfulness and heart behind them--and I think there are parts of the film that will stay with you.

The actors are uniformly good. Again, the success of the film rests on it's subtlety. Most of the performances were understated, it was as if life were just unfolding around these characters. Had any of this been played broadly, it would have been disastrous.

If you like arty, low key films there is a lot to like here. It doesn't quite come together into a sold whole but it's full of great moments.

I realize this isn't for everyone but I have to say I'm amazed by the reviews going on about the sub plot with the 6 year old b if you think that was about sex you are being rather dense. It's about a kid trying on adult behavior in the modern world without really understanding what that behavior is. And it parallels the neighbor girl who's building a dowry of household goods - she's doing the same thing. Any sexualization of the kid is happening in your head, irate viewers.

Miranda July's music is much like this movie: disjointed, spontaneous, edgy and begging for legitimacy. She tries really hard in both arenas, sometimes succeeding and sometimes failing. This is, I admit, a win.

There are plenty of situations and dialogue in the movie that is completely unbelievable. There are also nearly too many characters and subplots.

But, there is a central message that makes this a cohesive work, and she alludes to it toward the end of the movie. I'm not sure I agree with what she's saying, but thankfully, unlike some of her early music, the point is discernible. Also, she does a fantastic job of developing the characters, each with their own peculiarities.

Good movie if you're into indie flicks. If you're a summer blockbuster kind of person, this is not your movie.
