[It] has the aspiration to be a sex-drenched, naughty rich kids in Manhattan tale -- with an LGBT twist. With the good-looking cast, glitzy urbane setting, and entitled, showtunes-obsessed characters, it has the shiny surface to pull it off.
Joey Kuhn's feature debut is impressively polished, but its burnished surface is more highly worked than the unevenly satisfying drama beneath.
It's a well-made, solidly acted first feature with an easy-on-the-eyes cast.
The director, Joey Kuhn, making his feature debut from his own script, has created fairly credible and sympathetic characters, despite the 1-percenter milieu.
"Those People" ... suffers, perhaps, from a lack of timing; Kuhn's group of one-percenter millennials harkens back to early Whit Stillman or, more recently, "Gossip Girl."
Instead of the clinical detachment implied by the title Those People, writer-director Joey Kuhn bathes his first feature in warm compassion.
Kuhn's confidence allows "Those People" to elide didactic conversations about class, but using it as to create a subtext rich in every way for each of the relationships in the film.
Those People is a benchmark of advancement in cinema themes. It's one of the first times in which a filmmaker is able to tell a story about gay men wherein the focus isn't on their sexuality.
Joey Kuhn's gay coming-of-age romance is riveting, in spite of (because of?) of occasional detours into melodrama territory.
