The Future: Sundance Review

Miranda July’s long-awaited second feature brandishes poetic insights and imaginative flights akin to those that graced her 2005 debut Me and You and Everyone We Know, but without nearly so much of the bracing outrageousness and sense of surprise.

After its Sundance debut, the German-American coproduction will play in competition at the Berlin Film Festival next month.
