I wasn’t expecting to love PEOPLE LIKE US as much as I did. But the fact is, People Like Us caught me off guard, whipped me up and down on an emotional roller coaster, and left me smiling in the end.
I wrote up a more thorough movie review on People Like Us over at 5 Minutes for Mom, but here’s the basic run-down of the movie:
What is People Like Us About?
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 his family—and re-examine his own life choices in the process.
Now that I’ve seen the movie, even the trailer makes me tear up a little…
I was on the People Like Us Facebook page this week and noticed some quotes that went along with the movie….and totally fell in love and had to share.
