Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 01/26/2011
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "July has mounted a surrealist fable about the delicate balance between relationship and the inner monologue inside each lover..."
Movieline - 07/28/2011
"[A] provocative example of a filmmaker in complete control of her interests and her talents."
New York Times - 07/29/2011
"[An] ingeniously constructed wonder cabinet of a movie..."
A.V. Club - 07/28/2011
"THE FUTURE is full of amusing, lovely little moments..." -- Grade: A-
Los Angeles Times - 08/05/2011
"[T]here's a lot to like and to admire."
Chicago Sun-Times - 08/03/2011
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "On the surface, this film is an enchanting mediation. At its core is the hard steel of individuality."
Washington Post - 08/05/2011
3 stars out of 4 -- "[W]ith THE FUTURE she makes good on the promise of ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW, proving that she's a bona fide filmmaker, of real ambition and scope."
Entertainment Weekly - 07/29/2011
"July creates a fluid cinematic universe, flexible enough to embrace the artist's favorite interests....And she creates perfect images of supernatural everydayness." -- Grade: A-
Total Film - 12/01/2011
3 stars out of 5 -- "[A]ided by Jon Brion's off-beat score, July brings smartly surreal twists to the end stretch."
Sight and Sound - 12/01/2011
"[T]his is her most elegant and affecting work yet....[I]t's to July's credit that even the more peculiar scenes are captured with such straight-faced simplicity that they have a genuinely haunting power."

Product Description:

A young Los Angeles couple takes a month off from reality in anticipation of adopting a stray cat in this idiosyncratic drama from writer/director Miranda July. In 30 days, Sophie and Jason will be the proud owners of a homeless cat named Paw Paw. Realizing that their lives will never be the same once the new addition arrives in their cramped inner-city apartment, the anxious young couple decides to quit their jobs, give up the Internet, and explore the vast array of options that life has to offer. As Jason brings time to a standstill for a stroll on the moon, Sophie ponders the prospect of turning her back on the city for a future in the suburbs. Meanwhile, in order to find their way back home, Sophie and Jason must finally learn to become one with their own souls.
