It makes me want to fly out to the Big Apple right now and stroll the avenues, imbibing its unique offerings and seeing what hidden stories are being told in its nooks and crannies.

Person to Person is a wonderfully compartmentalized comedy, whose story about the minutiae of everyday life will take a restrained yet worth it view to appreciate.

Though at first the emotional stakes may seem low, the more one thinks about the movie the more its profound truths resonate beyond its narrative limits.

For a film so set on understatement, both comedic and dramatic, Person to Person is surprisingly affecting.

Defa, who writes as well directs, delivers a respectable ensemble cast movie with intricate story-lines and likeable characters; however it would have been more beneficial for the narrative had the stories been more neatly tied together.

Like a stoner telling a rambling but somehow completely endearing story that's entertaining despite never actually coming to a point.

Person to Person is a gently comic slices-of-life drama, the kind where a variety of people's conflicting, occasionally overlapping experience of the city comes together into a messy whole.

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