Quirkmeister Miranda July brings wallflowers to life in a new photo series for Vice magazine. In the set of six vignettes, July casts herself as extras from iconic films like The Godfather, Dog Day Afternoon, and The Outsiders.

And first, a message from the mind of Miranda:

Kramer vs. Kramer, 1979
