Fresh from this years’ BFI London Film Festival we bring you acclaimed writer/director Miranda July’s intriguing, deadpan comedy tracking the foibles and fortunes of a dysfunctional family of grifters.

Old Dolio (Rachel Evan Wood) and her parents Robert (Richard Jenkins) and Theresa (Debra Winger) are a trio of small-time hustlers who live in an abandoned and decrepit LA office block.
Spectacularly dysfunctional as parents, the couple have tried to spare their daughter the mediocrity of conventional life by treating her as an adult companion. But this has left her starved for tenderness.

So, when the family meet Melanie (Gina Rodriguez) during an elaborate scam involving lost luggage, Old Dolio’s heart is stirred.

July’s debut Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005) was a defining classic of noughties American cinema. The singular world view expressed in her myriad of works across film, art, and literature also shapes July’s third feature, with lonely people reaching across seemingly impassable expanses of awkwardness for human connection.

Rodriguez and Wood excel here, with Melanie opening Old Dolio’s life to the sweet possibility of ordinary love, but also potential grief – from where she least expects it.
