Storyline

'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 "Eldercab" driver who uses her fantastical artistic visions to draw her aspirations and objects of desire closer to her. Richard Swersey, 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 six-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. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Trivia

Characters refer to "Laurelhurst" (misspelled on the computer screen as "Laurelhearst") and "Burnside". Both are notable areas in Portland, Oregon, where writer/director Miranda July used to live. Christine also receives a cellphone call identified as "M & F Dept Store" which probably stands for "Meier & Frank." See more »

Goofs

When Christine is in the car for the first time with Michael we can see in the first shot that the seat belt is twisted twice on his chest. In the next shot, it isn't. See more »

Quotes

Michael: So tell Ellen about the shoe guy. Did you go back to the store?
Christine Jesperson: Yeah. And turns out he's a killer of children.
[pause]
Christine Jesperson: So, oh well.

an intelligent feel-good movie
27 May 2006 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

This is a film that exists out of several little paintings. It's a film made by artist and it's a work of art. Really, each scene is a painting. Each scene can stand on itself. The film is bright, warm, playful and innocent, but still it deals with subjects which are heavily loaded. Miranda July is wonderful as the star of the film. It was very clever of her to play the leading role. Nobody else could have done it that good. She's a little weird (aren't we all?) and no one else could have felt her character as well as she does. Her story, or should I say her stories, are also a little weird. Weird and warm. And so are all the other characters in the film. Weird and warm. Very clever and cheap too, not to use any familiar faces. A great lesson for other directors. You don't need big stars to tell a clever story.
