A comedy drama inspired by real events, People Like Us centres around Sam (Chris Pine), a twenty-something, fast-talking salesman, whose latest deal collapses the day he learns his father has suddenly passed. Regardless of his wishes Sam is called home, where he must put his Father’s estate in order, and reconnect with his long estranged family. While working to perform his father’s last wishes Same unearths a secret that’ll turn his world upside down; he has a sister, Frankie (Elizabeth Banks), that he never knew existed. As the two become closer he is forced to rethink all that he thought he knew about his family, and re-examine his life’s choices.
SHOULD YOU SEE IT?
With the beautiful and charismatic Elizabeth Banks as Frankie and that guy from that thing Chris Pine as Sam, People Like Us comes across a bit like a romance, and that’s a little disturbing given its subject matter.
The trailer is intriguing, but really there’s not a lot in it to make it seems a film worth forking out the cash to see.
People Like Us looks as heartwarming as swallowing hot coals instead of Gaviscon.
