Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

The Future (2011)

Sophie: We'll be forty in five years.
Jason: Uh. Forty is basically fifty and
then after fifty, the rest is just... loose change.
Sophie: Loose change?
Jason: Like... not quite enough to get
anything you really want.

How sad are you that Miranda July hasn't made a movie in seven years? I am exceptionally sad about that. The Future premiered at Sundance in 2011 and came out the following July (here is my original review) - I named it my #11 favorite movie of that year (2011 was a good year for movies, you guys). July has written some books in the eight years since - her book inspired by the making of The Future called It Chooses You is wonderful, as is her novel debut called The First Bad Man, but my favorite thing of hers (outside of movies) remains her original collection of short stories from 2008 called No One Belongs Here More Than You

But we're still waiting on a third movie - we did get news of that about a year ago; we posted a quote from her (from a chat with her hubby 20th Century Women director Mike Mills) in January 2017 where she said she's working on the script. Get to it, Miranda! We miss you! But you can take today, your 44th birthday, off I suppose.

Happy day!
