Trailer Debut: The Future

The trailer for Miranda July‘s new film The Future has debuted online. As you would expect from the writer/director of Me and You and Everyone We Know, The Future looks to be a unique, gorgeous and (overused indie descriptor alert!) quirky film experience.

The Future stars July and Hamish Linklater as a couple of thirty-somethings whose lives change following their adoption of a stray cat (who also acts as the film’s narrator). The picture received some very nice notices at Sundance earlier this year, and will screen in competition at next month’s Sydney Film Festival.

Check out the trailer and share your thoughts below.

You can also watch it in HD over at Apple.

I’m not the biggest fan of Me and You and Everyone We Know (it’s just a little too cute) but July is an undeniable talent, both behind and in front of the camera. Here’s hoping she has calibrated the balance between quirky affectations and affecting storytelling with this one.

Discuss: How much do you agree with the following statement.  “A film told from the perspective of a cat?! Where do I sign up?
