KAJILLIONAIRE
2020, Focus Features, 106 min, USA, Dir: Miranda July

From acclaimed writer-director Miranda July comes a profoundly moving and wildly original comedy. Con-artists Theresa (Debra Winger) and Robert (Richard Jenkins) have spent 26 years training their only daughter, Old Dolio (Evan Rachel Wood), to swindle, scam and steal at every opportunity. During a desperate, hastily conceived heist, they charm a stranger (Gina Rodriguez) into joining their next scam, only to have their entire world turned upside down. "As in ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW - where July also explored the universal human craving for connection - the wryly observant storyteller embraces a sense of everyday eccentricity while keeping her film’s feet firmly on the ground." - Peter Debruge, Variety.
