Film Fest Gent - Kajillionaire

Con-artists Theresa (Debra Winger) and Robert (Richard Jenkins) have spent 26 years training their only daughter, Old Dolio (Evan Rachel Wood), to swindle, scam, and steal at every opportunity. During a desperate, hastily conceived heist, they charm a stranger (Gina Rodriguez) into joining their next scam, only to have their entire world turned upside down.

"One of independent cinema's most singular voices, Miranda July infuses this absurdist satire about a dysfunctional family of scam artists with insights into what it means to be human. (...) With Kajillionaire, July devises a fresh strategy to offer an outsider's perspective, focusing on 26-years-young Old Dolio, the oddly named daughter in a family of scammers - dysfunctional scamily, if ever there was one. Old Dolio has been raised so far outside the acceptable mold of American parenting that it was all bound to backfire one day. Now, over the course of two eventful weeks, Old Dolio slow-motion short-circuits, finally expressing the desire to experience all that she's been denied." - Variety
