Robert (Jenkins) and Theresa (Winger) are two con-artists who have been teaching their reluctant 28-year-old daughter Old Dolio (Wood) how to steal, scam and swindle at every opportunity. For their latest scheme, they bring in outsider Melanie (Rodriguez) to help them, only for things to go sideways for each and every one of them…
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
Miranda July’s third feature – her first in nine years – is a funny and quirky caper with some delightfully deadpan performances, particularly from Evan Rachel Wood, and a number of unexpected surprises.
