White Rabbit

Sophia is like many other aspiring artists living in Los Angeles. She makes a living doing odd jobs and is trying to find creative fulfillment (or, ideally, fame) by posting wacky online videos and doing public performance art. This leads to moments of lighthearted absurdity—like when she films herself scarfing Cheetos in the name of viral notoriety—and pointed political gestures. At one point, Sophia dons a wig and jumpsuit and stands in a park making a speech about race relations in L.A. Still, WHITE RABBIT isn’t all fun and games. Sophia is also trying to navigate post-breakup feelings of loneliness and isolation—and she experiences a painful setback when her budding relationship with free-spirited photographer Victoria doesn’t turn out exactly as planned. Wise and sharply observant, WHITE RABBIT illustrates the life (or identity) we want for ourselves isn’t always within reach. But the film is also a humorous reminder that sometimes being true to yourself is the best move of all. —A.Z.
