Two of those feelings are “if you have not read No One Belongs Here More Than You, you should” and “if you have not seen Me and You and Everyone We Know, what are you doing, it’s on Netflix instant.” Another set of feelings is “excitement, joy, minor trepidation” about her (uncharacteristically briefly titled) new movie, The Future. The Hairpin describes it as being about ” two people who adopt a stray cat.” I am going to assume it also about The Future in some respect, and probably also about Miranda July in some respect.
Also, if you are too cool for school/to watch trailers about whimsical people and cats and feelings and MY HEART, then maybe you will enjoy this little whatsit that she made in order to promote the movie/make your life better: it is The Future on the internet! You can also sign up for The Future via email, at which point you will get a charming email like the one below:
