Storyline

IMITATION GIRL is the lyrical telling of a mysterious being who arrives on Earth in the shape of a young woman. Taken in by Iranian immigrants, a brother and sister living in the American Southwest, Imitation forms an understanding of the strange species around her, and as she learns more about her new body and her companions, she comes to appreciate the beauty and the sadness of her new world. At the same time, Julianna, Imitation's world-wise, world-weary earthly double, knows both glitz and grit working as an entertainer in New York City, where her fraying life and relationships now threaten her preparations for the dream audition that might finally set her on a happier path. On learning of Julianna's existence, Imitation heads to New York, where only by sacrificing themselves to each other can the cosmic twins complete their portrait of a woman and find fulfillment.

Not under your skin
30 June 2019 | by michael-phippsSee all my reviews

This is a very sublime mystery scifi that leans toward potential sociopolitical commentary through the juxtaposition of the character doubles. Definitely influenced by Kieslowski's The Double Life of Véronique. Very glad to have found this gem.

Also, surprised Lewis Black appears in a brief non comedy cameo role.
