People, Places, Things Trailer

"Don't give each other secret looks!" The Film Arcade has debuted the full trailer for Jim Strouse's People, Places, Things, starring Jemaine Clement as a graphic novel artist/teacher struggling with his life as a single father. Jim Strouse is the very talented filmmaker who brought us Grace is Gone and The Winning Season, two other Sundance gems from a few years back (if you haven't seen either yet, please go watch both of them right away). This new film also stars Regina Hall, Jessica Williams and Stephanie Allynne. I saw this at Sundance and it's really, really good. Nothing groundbreaking, but just a feel good charmer that will leave you with a smile and some optimism. This is a lovely trailer for a movie I hope doesn't get ignored.

Here's the first official trailer for Jim Strouse's People, Places, Things, in high def from Apple:

People, Places, Things

Will Henry (Jemaine Clement) is a graphic novelist and professor in NYC. At his adorable twin girls’ fifth birthday party, Will’s life is turned upside down when he walks in on the mother of his children and longtime girlfriend, Charlie (Stephanie Allynne), with their friend Gary (Michael Chernus). One year later, Will is still alone and trying to put his life back together. People, Places, Things stars Jemaine Clement along with Stephanie Allynne, Regina Hall, Jessica Williams, Derrick Arthur and Celia Au. The film is both written & directed by filmmaker Jim Strouse, of Grace Is Gone and The Winning Season previously. After premiering at the Sundance Film Festival, People, Places, Things arrives in theaters starting August 14th.

I like. Good to see something that doesn't look like a miserable shitstorm for a change.

Something tells me things will turn out all right for this guy.

showing..... < Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $177 per hour. I work through this link, < w­­­w­­­w.­­N­e­t­ca­sh­9.­­­C­­­o­­­m

Seems the boards have been getting hit with this spam a lot lately. Of course with the recent staffing events, there could be less monitoring of posts at the moment.

I like Jemaine. But in general these kinda of movies makes me sick.

Every now and then you need to see a movie with some heart and an uplifting story just to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside (and also to break up the mind-numbing amount of huge dumb blockbusters you get these days). Might just have to check this one out. Thanks Alex.

It's worth it.

The "ipad's" bit killed me haha. I love Jemaine.

Typically not my type of movie, but being a single dad of two kids myself, I think this movie might actually be worth checking out.

I am happily married, but I wouldn't mind being saved from eventual divorce by such woman as Jessica Williams ...

Hipsters grow up, have kids, get divorced, generally go through shit but do it in a hipster way, that's what makes this sooooooooo unique.

Looked like pretty universal shit to me.

It's Disqus. This happened 5 years ago, too. We talked with Disqus support, since there was an incessant amount of spam and they just say "nothing much we can do, keep marking them as spam, it should clear up." Ugh. We have all the spam systems enabled, at the highest levels, yet the spammers just always get through. Keep flagging them and we'll always keep cleaning.

Will do AB. Thanks for keeping FS classy.
