Here's a perfectly twee little romance all but smothered in a blanket of indie 'edge.'
Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel  full review
 
These characters are sympathetic.

July is without a doubt a brave new talent in the creatively beleaguered world of American cinema.

Easily the year's most imaginative movie.
Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press
 
A film of indescribable and often unmentionable charm, Me and You and Everyone We Know is one of those completely unexpected artistic experiences, a work from an unknown with such a compelling, unique perspective that it boggles and inspires.
Tom Long, Detroit News
 
First-time feature director July's success has a great deal to do with her bold embrace of childhood and its gnarly truths.
Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post  full review
 
Director Miranda July just might be the year's most exciting film discovery.
Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
 
Although Me and You and Everyone We Know requires patience on the part of the viewer -- to get past the faux naivete of its grown-up characters, to get past its deadpan arty tone -- Miranda July's feature debut is worth the time.
Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
 
July is a delightful discovery, as both a filmmaker and a performer.
Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune  full review
 
One leaves the theater grateful to have shared the time with these characters on-screen, but hoping we won't meet them in the lobby.
Richard Nilsen, Arizona Republic  full review
 
The debut film from performance art crossover Miranda July delivers an unlikely blend of irreverence and optimism. For all its dark humor and fringe qualities, the movie never descends into easy misanthropy.
Lisa Rose, Newark Star-Ledger  full review
