Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It seems quite possible that Me and You marks the arrival of an artist who may affect -- disturbingly yet helpfully -- films and audiences to come."
‑ Stanley Kauffmann, The New Republic
"July is without a doubt a brave new talent in the creatively beleaguered world of American cinema."
‑ Leah McLaren, Globe and Mail
"This wobbly low fidelity romantic comedy is filled with distinctly unlikable characters and an unsubstantiated use of child sexuality that further clouds the film's morally rudderless course."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"Precious with a capital 'P.'"
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"With a film like Me and You and Everyone We Know there is much to talk about afterward, and half the fun is in its dissection."
‑ Forrest Hartman, Reno Gazette-Journal
"Here's a perfectly twee little romance all but smothered in a blanket of indie 'edge.'"
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"July's suspiciously contrived awkwardness notwithstanding, the picture is at its best when it cleaves to her experimental video aesthetic; framing the mundane with the wonder of a child-like perspective."
‑ Luke Goodsell, Empire Magazine Australasia
"breaks through its own whimsical stylisation to touch you in unexpected and mysterious ways."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"Micro budget, no-name cast, but a movie with boundless imagination."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"In a time in which the big screen is cluttered with retreads of old TV shows... July's film is an oasis of offbeat observations and provocative humor."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"These characters are sympathetic."
‑ Susan Walker, Toronto Star
"Much of this is far too precious - it's mostly for adults who impulsively put socks on their ears, as a character does here."
‑ Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm
"A clever screenwriter and inspired director, July takes us places no other filmmaker has ever visited."
‑ Bruce Feld, Film Journal International
"Me and You and Everyone We Know is as unexpected as life itself."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"A journey from sexual innocence to youthful curiosity, middle-aged disconnection and finally death in the magical simultaneity of screen time."
‑ Bryant Frazer, Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
