A loving dystopian portrait of an inveterate Utopist
9 June 2015 | by mjsqueezeSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film.

How not too? A woman with a crazily Utopian father shows restraint, humor, irony and love, while putting all her cards on the table in this memorable and imaginative portrait.

The use of mixed media to lighten the drama, and fill in the missing scenes, while adding even more humanity to work is refreshing and inspiring for young filmmakers.

Her love and compassion and tolerance do not stop her from confronting the family demons. At the same time, she accepts the eccentricities with irony and grace, giving them beauty and weight while maintaining a subtle

Perhaps a better title: Me, My Father, and His Utopias or Surviving Utopists, 101
