Story


From DreamWorks Pictures comes "People Like Us," a drama/comedy about family, inspired by true events, starring Chris Pine ("Star Trek") as Sam, a twenty-something, fast-talking salesman, whose latest deal collapses on the day he learns that his father has suddenly died. Against his wishes, Sam is called home, where he must put his father's estate in order and reconnect with his estranged family. In the course of fulfilling his father's last wishes, Sam uncovers a startling secret that turns his entire world upside down: He has a 30-year-old sister Frankie whom he never knew about (Elizabeth Banks). As their relationship develops, Sam is forced to rethink everything he thought he knew about this family--and re-examine his own life choices in the process.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..kurtzman directs with such energy and passion you keep hoping the film won't sink into melodramatic quicksand. It does..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..is neither funny enough for comedy or serious enough for real drama..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
“..Kurtzman and Orci deserve credit for defying cliche, raining out the possibility of rom-com courtship between Pine and Banks and instead creating a movie that's overcast with incestuous dramatic irony..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
