As the day on which they can pick up their new cat from the shelter approaches, 30-somethings Sophie (July) and Jason (Linklater) begin to panic.
Their relationship, their careers (what little there is), their entire lives seem to depend on how they will fare as Paw-Paw’s adoptive parents, and they begin to question their very existence as individuals and as a couple.
But they’re old enough to know better than to make some of the rash decisions that follow, which makes you lose sympathy for them fast, unless their doe-eyed cluelessness can somehow ignite your protector instincts.
The Future | Directed by Miranda July (USA 2011) with Miranda July, Hamish Linklater. Starts October 27
