Storyline

Jennifer, an independent designer disappointed in her stalled relationship and career, discovers a surreal mashup videotape, labeled "Meme," among a friend's VHS collection. She goes in search of Meme's creator, tracking down people who appear on the tape to gain greater insight into what it is and why it exists. As she pursues the creator of the tape she takes greater control of other aspects of her life including her relationship, difficult clients, and a drinking problem that increasingly interferes with her life.

Unlike anything else I've seen
16 January 2019 | by koleary1See all my reviews

It's almost hard for me to write about Meme because it's so unlike virtually every other film I've watched. Particularly fresh: the use of the mystery around the origin of the VHS tape as a means for Jennifer to recover her own identity while navigating issues in her relationship.

The portrayal of the primary relationship in the film was almost *too* realistic. It was hard to watch at times and will ring true for anyone who's been in a long-term relationship.

Finally, the performances are great -- nuanced and real. Fantastic cast and direction.
