In this quirky, deeply moving romance (written and directed by its star, Miranda July), a free-spirited couple's love affair unravels after they adopt a sick cat. Heavy on whimsy (the sly kitty, Paw-Paw, narrates!), the poignant comedy captures the feeling of a relationship in free fall when no one is at fault, yet the mutual attraction has evaporated. It's a delicately told, refreshingly original tale.
