What if God were an angry family man from Brussels who sat at his computer in his dressing gown, dreaming up commandments to amuse himself and annoy everyone else? And what if his daughter, in a fit of childish pique, decided to change the rules and write a brand New Testament?

This gloriously imaginative comedy answers all these questions with a series of affectionately funny twists on religion and society.

2008 Cannes Film Festival - Nominee Palme d'Or

Charlie Kaufman's 2008 directorial debut is a cryptic, demanding, depressing, confrontational, and self-indulgent masterpiece. Theater director Caden Cotard is mounting a new play. He gathers an ensemble cast into a warehouse in New York City, hoping to create a work of brutal honesty. He directs them in a celebration of the mundane, instructing each to live out their constructed lives in a growing mockup of the city outside.

He is amazed to discover a possible escape from his desperation in the form of an unassuming Akron baked goods sales rep, Lisa, who may or may not be the love of his life.

Suzanne Crocker and her husband left their jobs and set forth with three children, two cats and one dog to spend nine months living in a small cabin with no road access, no electricity or running water and not a single clock. By living their lives dictated by the passing of the seasons, their family comes together to rediscover themselves within the natural world. Set in the breathtaking wildness of Canada's Yukon Territory and filmed entirely off the grid without an external crew, All the Time in the World crafts an intimate and heartwarming portrait of a family in search of deeper connection.
