Director: Miranda July Run Time: 105 min. Release Year: 2020
Starring: Debra Winger, Evan Rachel Wood, Gina Rodriguez, Patricia Belcher, Richard Jenkins
Two con artists have spent 26 years training their only daughter to swindle, scam and steal at every turn. During a desperate and hastily conceived heist, they charm a stranger into joining them, only to have their entire world turned upside down. Miranda July’s latest film centers on an unbelievable performance from Evan Rachel Wood as a young woman so controlled by the neuroses and beliefs of her parents that she is practically suffocating. The film bears witness to a remarkable transformation as she begins to challenge her reality after meeting a free-spirited outsider.
“Kajillionaire is funny, original, sad and singular. In other words, it’s Peak Miranda July.” – Empire Magazine
