Indi Romp Time! This week in The Q we go back and forth as we chat about award winning (2005) Film Me and You and Everyone we Know from “Dir-Actor” Miranda July. It tells the tale of a handful of disparate characters, both adults and children, who find themselves navigating the tricky waters of intimacy and apprehension at life’s various stages. Richard (John Hawkes) is a recent divorcé who is alternately exhilarated and terrified with his life and the world around him. While he believes great things are in store for him, he’s also become so despondent about his wife’s departure that he attempts to set his hand on fire in order to somehow impress his Children, whom he fears are slipping away. Richard meets Christine (Miranda July) at the shoe store where he works; Christine likes to paint a picture of herself as a stylish and confident video artist, but in truth she supports herself as a driver with a car service for the elderly, and she’d very much like to meet someone special. As Richard and Christine fumble their way into a relationship, Richard’s two sons have issues of their own. Seven-year-old Robby (Brandon Ratcliff) has met someone in an Internet chat room who responds to his naïve and scatological perceptions of sex, while 14-year-old Peter (Miles Thompson) finds himself on the receiving end of unusual and unexpected attention from two girls in his class… That’s this week, along with our Top 3 “Quirky” Movie Relationships.
