Story


Me and You and Everyone We Know is a poetic and penetrating observation of how people struggle to connect with one another in an isolating and contemporary world. Christine Jesperson is a lonely artist and eEldercab driver who uses her fantastical artistic visions to draw her aspirations and objects of desire closer to her. Richard Swersey (John Hawkes), a newly single shoe salesman and father of two boys, is prepared for amazing things to happen. But when he meets the captivating Christine, he panics. Life is not so oblique for Richard's seven-year-old Robby, who is having a risqué internet romance with a stranger, and his fourteen- year-old brother Peter who becomes the guinea pig for neighborhood girls - practicing for their future of romance and marriage.

In July's modern world, the mundane is transcendent and everyday people become radiant characters who speak their innermost thoughts, act on secret impulses, and experience truthful human moments that at times approach the surreal. They seek together-ness through tortured routes and find redemptionin small moments that connect them to someone else on earth.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it's increasingly rare that we see a film with this kind of quiet depth and poetic soul escape..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..possesses a quirky charm that is so difficult to categorize that perhaps the jury's award for "originality of vision" is the only way to describe it..”
by Annlee Ellingson [Boxoffice Magazine]
“..a wonderful debut that shows great promise for whatever July does next...”
by Edward Douglas [Comingsoon]
