Our take

A film fully realized by writer-director and star Miranda July (also an accomplished author and artist), this sophomore feature is telescopic and microscopic, balancing both the personal and universal. A hugely ambitious sci-fi-hybrid steeped in metaphor, as well a touching, human romantic drama.
