'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

Mom says we have a chore wheel.
A chore wheel. You put chores on it and then you can spin it. There's this metal thing and it helps it to spin. It's spinning from the metal.

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.
