“The Future is, ironically enough, about the present and the longing for the future, rather than the future itself. One line that you’ll find in the trailer is when an old man tells Jason (played by Hamish Linklater), “It can be hard in the beginning.” To which Jason replies, “We didn’t have those kind of problems in the beginning.” And the old man says to him, “Well, the thing is you’re just… in the middle of the beginning, right now.”
Miranda July’s ‘Me and You and Everyone We Know’ was about the beginning of a relationship. ‘The Future’ is about the middle of the beginning."
I had mixed reviews, while watching the film. However, after the film was over, I found that I really enjoyed the movie’s main/reoccurring theme as it bought a “sense of relief” to me… it’s only just the beginning! :) Definitely something I’ll take away…
Plus, I just absolutely adored the paws of Paw-Paw, Hamish Linklater, and Miranda July’s lovely artistic style!
