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.

Walk in my shoes

Struggling artists and broken down characters ... it will not be easy to completely sympathize with the main character (one of them that is) and it has not so much to do with the profession she "chose" for herself, but rather the way she aims to reach her goals. But then again, if you don't have a flawed protagonist, where would the friction be? In this case, we get an added bonus of a different path ... The main actress has quite some baggage to carry.

Strong female characters (with as mentioned before flaws, but nevertheless) are not that common in film, so it is refreshing to see this. And while the script may feel unfocused at points, the story is so weird and out there ... no pun intended. But it does make up for it for sure. If you like slow pacing drama, with small Science Fiction and social issues fragments woven into it ... this is for you
