"Molly's Theory of Relativity" is a sexy, funny, surreal, and devastating portrait of a beautiful twenty-eight year-old astronomer who, having unexpectedly lost her job, is poised to make perhaps the first reckless decision of her life. Her story unfolds during an eighteen-hour period, on Halloween. Providing counsel on the fateful day are her husband, her father-in-law, three deceased relatives, a precocious nine-year-old trick-or-treater, her grandfather from Minot, North Dakota, and a six-year old neighbor, who may or may not be imaginary. “Molly’s Theory of Relativity” is about the economy, and how we value what we do for a living, to ourselves and to 6 others. It’s observes the unbreakable bonds of family, and posits the notion that death is merely a relative thing.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Something of an intriguing, if not entirely successful, exoticism.
Rotten: Lipsky is clearly reaching for something grand and cosmic here, but the results are mostly just confounding.
Rotten: For all of "Molly's" naturalistic, low-budget indie ambience, the film is a fantastical curiosity, whose indulgences will try one's patience.
Rotten: "Molly's Theory of Relativity" is anti-cinema.
