About the Film:

Life with a seven-month-old is filled with love, joy, and...monotony. The days are long, but there is beauty if you know where to look.


Film Critic, Randy Meyers Comment:

Casey Beck’s elliptical “You/Me,” evocatively captures the intimate connections that a mom has with children during these Shelter In Place times.  You/Me is quiet, immersive and touching -- in the best ways possible.
