Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005)

While there's more characters of note, for my purposes right now I'll mention the two kids, two teenagers, two adults, and two pensioners who are each attempting to make some kind of sense of the peculiar hand that life has dealt them. Their struggles strike a perfect blend of mundane but quirky, evident mostly when the stored hopes of each one spill out into the visible world for all to see... provided anyone is even looking in their direction.
The nuances will strike a chord with some, events will engage or alienate, but there's no doubt that Dir. Miranda July has an eye for details, and the acting from everyone is as good as it could be - even the kids are excellent.

3½ back and forth out of 5
