Aro Favourite Me and You and Everyone We Know

 

USA 2004, 90 minutes
Dir. Miranda July
Rating: [R]
Genres: Drama, Comedy / Romance

Topics: Internet.

 

Aroview: An intriguing, fine-quality drama from the boundary of art and indie filmmaking, in which two struggling characters - a performance artist (July) and a divorced father (Hawkes) - connect across the distressing, surreal crises of their lives.

Set around a suburban cityscape akin to Todd Solondz' HAPPINESS, this likewise plumbs the recesses of modern existence in their sadness, humour and banality: internet sex chat-rooms, post-marital confusion, career estrangements and adolescent fumblings, but manages to pull off a more whimsical, airy approach, without the off-putting heavy irony. While some may find the storyline bleakly inconsequential, this resonates a curious poetry that can only be the mark of a talented artiste.
