"The suburbs: signs of lifes, but no proofs..."
THIS MAY- We're taking a cinematic journey to the spaces in between. Join us as we look beyond the freshly mowed lawns and white picket fences for a deeper study of life in the glossy hinterlands. The Paradise Presents: SOMEWHERE IN SUBURBIA- eight stories that prove the signs of life in static settings.
On May 21st, join us as we take take another jaunt through the world of American independent cinema, for the breakthrough film of writer, director, and star Miranda July. She offers a unique take on contemporary life and relationships in the most recent film in our series. The Paradise Presents: ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW.
With this compassionate, startling comedy that could have come from no other artistic sensibility, the brilliant Miranda July reveals a world both familiar and strange—an original vision of creativity, sexuality, childhood, and loneliness that emerges from a series of braided vignettes around a pair of potential lovers: Richard, a newly single shoe salesman and father of two (John Hawkes), and Christine, a lonely video artist and “Eldercab” driver (July). While they take hesitant steps toward romance, Richard’s sons follow their own curiosity toward their first sexual experiences, online and in real life, venturing into uncharted territories in their attempts to connect with others. Playful and profoundly transgressive, Me and You and Everyone We Know is a poetic look at the tortuous routes we take to intimacy in an isolating world, and the moments of magic and redemption that unite us.
