People Like Us Review

“People Like Us,” a drama/comedy about family, inspired by true events, starring Chris Pine (“Star Trek”) as Sam, a twenty-something, fast-talking salesman, whose latest deal collapses on the day he learns that his father has suddenly died. Against his wishes, Sam is called home, where he must put his father's estate in order and reconnect with his estranged family. In the course of fulfilling his father's last wishes, Sam uncovers a startling secret that turns his entire world upside down: He has a 30-year-old sister Frankie whom he never knew about (Elizabeth Banks). As their relationship develops, Sam is forced to rethink everything he thought he knew about this family—and re-examine his own life choices in the process.

In a story inspired by true events, Sam, a twenty-something, fast-talking salesman, is tasked with fulfilling his estranged father’s last wishes—delivering an inheritance to a sister he never knew he had.

My thoughts-This was such a great movie to reflect on.  It made me think of how me and my brothers in sisters in El Salvador were when we first met.  I cried.  Elizabeth Banks is really good at portraying a single mom.  My husband even said, I wanna call my mom after the movie.  It was good.  Leave the kids at home, and gave your hunny and head to the movies.

Here is the trailer in case you have not seen it:

***Disclosure-No compensation was received.  We were invited to an advance movie screening for review.  These are my honest opinions.
