Will is busy hosting his twin daughters’ birthday party when he discovers that his wife Charlie is cheating on him with one of the guests. Feeling that she has not accomplished what she wanted in her life by his side, Charlie leaves Will. Apathetic, but kind-hearted, Will tries to put his life back together, meet someone new, forgive Charlie, and above all, be a more dedicated father and commit to spend more quality time with his twin girls. Halfway between a romantic comedy and an existential drama, People, Places, Things manages to touch the audience while being entertaining.
After two first films with stars cast, director James C. Strouse turns to independent filmmaking and presents a witty comedy relying on the deadpan humour of its offbeat main character, Will (played by brilliant New Zealand comedian, Jemaine Clement). Yet, the film also manages to explore themes more likely to be associated with drama, like fatherhood, post-breakup parenthood and loneliness. Charming and with a well-written script, People, Places, Things premiered at Sundance and has been screened at many other festivals.
