People Places Things Reviews

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.

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.

There are two reasons to check out People Places Things - but neither the lead actors nor the characters they play are among them.

Perhaps the wimpy ending is exactly what wishy-washy Will Henry deserved. I, on the other hand, deserved better.

Small, smart and inescapably independent, "People Places Things" has its own offbeat and charmingly low-key way of seeing the world.
August 13, 2015
Strouse has come up with a near-perfect blend of awkward wit and good-natured sweetness.

As the movie progresses, Will learns, in his low-key way, that life is full of unexpected twists, that love is hard to put away, and that people who share children can never fully leave each other.

A movie that, much like the insufferable Charlie, can't make up its mind about where to go or how to get there.
August 13, 2015
An off-kilter romantic comedy in which everything turns out the way you might have hoped it would if you hadn't been kept in a state of happy suspense along the way.

It's a slight little movie, but its stars make you care about the people-if not so much the places and things.
August 13, 2015
Rampant cutesiness, improbable spontaneous decisions, indie-movie clichés, and the occasional decent one-liner.

This is boilerplate rom-com fare with few plot surprises. But thanks to witty dialogue, strong performances and sure-handed direction, the movie's also smart, hilarious and an absolute delight.

Strouse's film is about the changes that occur in all relationships and about letting go when it's time. It will probably not change your worldview about any people, places or things, but it's a pleasant way to spend a couple hours.

Ceaselessly entertaining, witty, and sentimental.

"People, Places, Things" is a total charmer.
January 28, 2015
There are no broad gestures or base comedy - the clever dialogue is instead packed with zingers, even if it sometimes takes a moment to get the punning humour.
January 27, 2015
A mild, low-impact relationship dramedy with a droll script and considerable feeling.

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.
January 26, 2015
For a film with one eye on messy, real emotions, "People, Places, Things" undercuts itself with goofy humor.
