First Look: New trailer for Miranda July’s ‘The Future’

The Future

The FutureWhen we last saw Miranda July around these parts, it was with her disarming debut feature Me and You and Everyone We Know back in 2005. Miranda July is a performance artist a performance artist who chose her last name based on the month that month that most facilitates her creativity, and her first film was largely compared with Todd Solondz’s Happiness in its frank depictions of adults, children and sexuality.

In The Future, she tells the story of a thirty-something couple who, on deciding to adopt a stray cat, change their perspective on life, literally altering the course of time and testing their faith in each other and themselves.

This exclusive new trailer comes to us courtesy of Apple Trailers, bless their cotton socks.

The Future is playing in competition at the Sydney Film Festival in June 2011, and is due for release in US theatres on 29 July 2011 from Roadside Attractions.
