People, Places, Things

Screening: Sunday, May 3, 5pm


Directed by James C. Strouse

Starring: Jemaine Clement, Regina Hall, and Jessica Williams

Running Time: 85 minutes

Synopsis: Will Henry (Jemaine Clement) is a graphic novelist, a professor at the School of Visual Arts, and the father of beautiful twin girls (Gia and Aundrea Gadsby). But Will’s seemingly picture-perfect Brooklyn life is turned upside down when he catches his longtime girlfriend and mother of his children cheating on him with a friend. A year later, Will is a single father living alone in a tiny studio apartment in Astoria and trying to put his life back together. In this thoughtful comedy, he must navigate the unknown landscape of single fatherhood and dating in New York City while remaining an inspiration for his students and coming to terms with himself as both a father and artist.

What the Critics Are Saying:

“People, Places, Things radiates a warmth and calm which is comforting, a lovely little film that’s both entertaining and sweet. It’s a bit bleak without being cynical, and moving without being saccharine.”

-Jason Gorber, TwitchFilm

“A superb, comically gifted cast helps writer-director Jim Strouse lift this quite a few cuts above his previous work as well as above the general run of films about modern life and relationships.”

-Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
