Me and You and Everyone We Know

  • Mar 7, 2013 · 6:45 PM
  • Varsity Theatre

This film is presented by the Ackland in connection with the exhibition More Love: Art, Politics, and Sharing since the 1990s (on view 1 Feb - 31 Mar 2013), which also features the work of director, Miranda July.

This film tells the story of Christine Jesperson, a lonely artist and “Eldercab” driver, who uses her fantastical artistic visions to draw her aspirations and objects of desire closer to her. Richard Swersey (John Hawkes), a newly single shoe salesman and father of two boys, is prepared for amazing things to happen. But when he meets Christine, he panics. Life is not so oblique for Richard’s seven-year-old Robby, who is having a risqué internet romance with a stranger, and his fourteen- year-old brother Peter who becomes the guinea pig for neighborhood girls— practicing for their future of romance and marriage. In July’s modern world, the mundane is transcendent and everyday people become radiant characters who speak their innermost thoughts, act on secret impulses, and experience truthful human moments that at times approach the surreal. They seek together-ness through tortured routes and find redemption in small moments that connect them to someone else on earth.


Tickets are $4 at the Varsity Theatre Box Office on the day of the show. (Students get in free with valid university or high school ID). Please note: Varsity Groupon tickets are not valid for Ackland film screenings.

Show time is 7:00 pm. Let’s gather 15-20 mins beforehand to purchase tickets and find seats. Afterwards, we can go someplace nearby to discuss the film, if the group is interested.

    The movie was great! I didn't know anybody there other than the person I came with and I really wasn't sure how to introduce myself so it didn't feel like a meetup, per se. Maybe next time, I should try being on time. My dinner reservations ran later than I thought they would. :-(

      Sorry we missed you! We headed into the theater about 6:50ish. We also gather a bit in the lobby afterwards to see who is interested in going out. Hope to see you next time! :) Everyone is friendly so just come on up to the group and say hi! :)
