Movie Info

"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.(c) Adopt films

Critic Reviews for Molly's Theory Of Relativity

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (7)

  • Molly's Theory of Relativity has its fleeting moments. But writer-director Jeff Lipsky's purpose always seems just beyond reach.

    Jun 20, 2013 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Something of an intriguing, if not entirely successful, exoticism.

    Mar 29, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • For all of "Molly's" naturalistic, low-budget indie ambience, the film is a fantastical curiosity, whose indulgences will try one's patience.

  • "Molly's Theory of Relativity" is anti-cinema.

    Mar 1, 2013 | Rating: 0.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "Molly's Theory of Relativity" shows how our parents live inside us, and how our relationships with them continue to evolve even after they're gone.

    Feb 28, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • Lipsky is clearly reaching for something grand and cosmic here, but the results are mostly just confounding.
