LondonNet Film Review
Kajillionaire (12A)

Artist and filmmaker Miranda July continues to explore the human condition from an unapologetically off-kilter perspective in a comedy drama about a family of small-time crooks. Old Dolio Dyne (Evan Rachel Wood) carries out petty thefts in Los Angeles with her parents Robert (Richard Jenkins) and Theresa (Debra Winger), who seems incapable of showing her a shred of warmth and compassion. The family divides the spoils of each underhand scheme but fails to pay the rent on a squalid apartment, which acts as a base of operations…

A bright and bubbly outsider called Melanie (Gina Rodriguez) gate-crashes the clan’s hand-to-mouth existence, hoping to learn the tricks of the con trade. Old Dolio is initially jealous of the vivacious interloper, who possesses some of the traits she lacks. Melanie ultimately forces Old Dolio to scrutinise her unconventional and damaging upbringing.

Kajillionaire screens to our critic on Tuesday, Screen back later in the week for a full review.
