Me and You and Everyone We Know
Filmfest 2005

ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW is a poetic and penetrating observation of how people struggle to connect with one another in an isolating and contemporary world. Christine Jesperson is a lonely artist and “Eldercab” driver who uses her fantastical artistic visions to draw her aspirations and objects of desire closer to her. Richard Swersey, a newly single shoesalesman and father of two boys, is prepared for amazing things to happen. But when he meets the captivating Christine, he panics. In July‘s modern world, the mundane is transcendent and everyday people become radiant characters who speak their innermost thoughts, act on secret impulses, and experience truthful human moments that at times approach the surreal. They seek togetherness through tortured routes and find redemption in small moments that connect them to someone else on earth.
