In Response to RE: An Excellent Movie: "People Like Us" by Littlemite
I saw People Like Us a few weeks ago - between the BIG movies, and think that this will get noticed in the secondary market of Netflix and other rentals. It is not a film the main demographic is going to see.
That said, I too recommend it to people here who enjoy well written, intelligent movies. The complex emotions this movie deals with does not make it a 'chick flick'. In the broadest sense this is a story for anyone who's been in a family - i.e. anyone.
Chris Pine deals with his anger at his late father and the bewildering task left to him to find a relative he never knew existed. Michelle Pfeiffer is excellent as a wife to an enigmatic husband whose secrets she kept, and Elizabeth Banks is spot on in the role of a single mother.
Contrast the motherly emotions of Banks and Pfeiffer as you go through this film, and rejoice in Pine's ability to go beyond being only the second actor to play Capt. James Kirk.. He is marvelous in this movie.
The ending is triumphant, and if it doesn't tug your heartstrings a little, go see a shrink.
