An absolutely delightful charmer!

People Places Things doesn't offer much in the way of satisfying resolution, instead just kind of petering out.
July 13, 2018
Strouse's ongoing emphasis on overly off-kilter instances of comedy and character development sometimes prevents the viewer from entirely embracing the material...

Nominated for the Sundance Grand Jury Prize, the film has plenty of smart, witty lines, and Clement is the perfect actor to give them life.

Clement's predilection for center stage is real and actually kind of astounding, pole-vaulting James Strouse's low-key romantic comedy into something much sturdier.

Strouse has a built a career on small, personal stories, and this film is no different.

Clement is better-suited as a foil to Conchord-like absurdity, where it works as a droll counterweight.
September 10, 2015
Strouse offers a light treatment of a heavy situation. And the longer it goes, the deeper the sense of reality, the better the scenes. That's more than unusual. Most films get worse in the third act, not better.
September 10, 2015
People Places Things is a mildly amusing observational comedy about relationships that has its droll moments.
August 28, 2015
It's a witty, heartfelt and engaging film that's elevated by the performances.
August 28, 2015
Consistently funny, smart and poignant.
August 26, 2015
Clement is funny and touching as the heartbroken artist, and he and Hall have a sparkling chemistry.
August 23, 2015
Jemaine Clement is terrific, and there's a lot to admire, but the picture is subsumed by an inescapable aura of insubstantiality.
August 20, 2015
Gently funny and admirably, even unfashionably humane.

Who cares?

People, Places, Things manages to find a pocket within the genre that is light, hopeful, and likeable sans characters transforming into shrews or unredeemable jerks. It's good, and that's just fine.
August 19, 2015
Strouse's script is so entertaining and Clement and supporting players give such endearing, heartfelt performances, relatable to denizens of Brooklyn, Astoria and beyond.
August 19, 2015
We know these characters are going through a lot, even if we don't always see it. And so, this short, ramshackle, shrinking movie manages to stick with you.
August 19, 2015
The film begins in fits and starts, and the ending is a bit trite, too, but it's a fairly satisfying look at how real people relate to each other, or fail to do so, in a relationship.
August 19, 2015
...a sweeter, genuinely funny film that's more interested in the people telling the jokes than the jokes themselves.
