Movie Info

During a single day in New York City, a variety of characters grapple with the mundane, the unexpected, and the larger questions permeating their lives. An investigative reporter struggles with her first day on the job, despite help from her misguided boss; a rebellious teen attempts to balance her feminist ideals with other desires; and a young man seeks to reconcile with his ex-girlfriend, even as her brother threatens revenge. Meanwhile, an avid music lover traverses the city in search of a rare record for his vinyl collection. Shot entirely in 16mm, PERSON TO PERSON effortlessly humanizes its characters, invoking an earnest realism in the performances of its ensemble cast: Michael Cera, Abbi Jacobson, Michaela Watkins, and newcomer Bene Coopersmith. Defa demonstrates his aptitude for honest storytelling as he explores the absurdity and challenges of forging human connections.

It's played out casually, never lunging for big laughs or revelations-and it charms often because it's cozy with just enough surprises.

Once you settle into its groove the movie becomes much more than the sum of its parts.

Nostalgia is one thing, but Defa's feature itself is an example of reprising things about the past that didn't particularly work.

An enjoyable throwback to a vintage mode of urban ensemble comedy.

Top Critic

The uneven quality of Person to Person's stories and the inconsequential feel of much of what happens make the film feel a little like a stroll through the city.

Slant Magazine

Professionally executed festival commonplace [with] just enough to make the old contraption hum.
