CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com appears on “The Morning Mess” with Scott Thompson on WBGR-FM (Monroe, Wisconsin) on September 24th, 2020, reviewing the new live action film “Kajillionaire,” a new film by quirky writer/director Miranda July.

HollywoodChicago.com Oscarman rating: 5.0/5.0
Rating: 5.0/5.0

The film features an unrecognizable Evan Rachel Wood as Old Dolio, daughter of street hustlers Robert and Theresa (Richard Jenkins and Debra Winter). The trio live hand to mouth by essentially doing small con jobs. When a stranger named Melanie (Gina Rodriguez) comes into their lives, the dynamic of the street crew is never the same. This is a meditation on the philosophy of relationships, parent-to-child and friend-to-friend, and what those relationships mean when survival is the main goal. In theaters on September 25th, and Video-On-Demand October 16th.

“Kajillionaire” is in theaters on September 25th. See local listings for details. Featuring Evan Rachel Wood, Richard Jenkins, Debra Winger, Mark Ivanir and Gina Rodriguez. Written and directed by Miranda July. Rated “R”
