There There Summary and Synopsis
Acclaimed filmmaker Andrew Bujalski (Support the Girls, Computer Chess) explores the precarious nature of human connection in There There, a round robin of emotional two-character vignettes in which seven people reach out and bond momentarily, setting the scene for the next encounter. A pair of new lovers, a woman and her AA sponsor, a teacher and a parent, a lawyer and his client, and more, move from scene to scene, changing partners and beginning a new dance of discovery as they do. Via a groundbreaking shooting process, Bujalski plays with the ideas of isolation and perception by filming each actor individually in separate locations without ever seeing their partner’s performance. An extraordinary cast including Jason Schwartzman, Lili Taylor, Lennie James and Molly Gordon sensitively captures the humor and heartbreaking fragility of life and love in the 2020s.
