Some good news for a great film out of the Sundance Film Festival. Director Jim Strouse, who last played Sundance with the films The Winning Season and Grace Is Gone, returned this year with a film called People, Places, Things starring Jemaine Clement as a graphic artist/illustrator. The charming film was quite enjoyable, I would actually recommend it and I hope people get a chance to see it, a very amusing little romantic comedy. Deadline is reporting that up-and-coming distributor The Film Arcade has picked up People, Places, Things for a Us release, sometime this summer. The indie distributor is also releasing Sundance faves A.C.O.D., Song One, The Voices, They Came Together and Dinosaur 13. So keep an eye out. People, Places, Things stars Jemaine Clement along with Stephanie Allynne, Regina Hall, Jessica Williams, Derrick Arthur and Celia Au. I saw the film at Sundance and enjoyed it quite a bit, »

After earning rave reviews out of its Sundance premiere last month, Jim Strouse's "People, Places, Things" has been acquired for U.S. distribution by The Film Arcade. Starring Jemaine Clement ("Flight of the Conchords") and Regina Hall ("Scary Movie"), "People, Places, Things" is a poignant and relatable comedy about a recently divorced father who must now navigate the unknown landscape of single fatherhood and dating in New York City, while letting go of the wife who left him. It's the third film directed by Strouse, whose debut "Grace is Gone" earned two Golden Globe nominations and various festival prizes. "We're big fans of Jim's earlier films and he impressed us once again with 'People, Places, Things,' which is a witty and refreshingly honest look at modern day relationships," said The Film Arcade's Andy Bohn. "Jemaine Clement is as funny and charming as ever and we can't wait to share Jim's film. »

The Film Arcade has nabbed U.S. rights to “People, Places, Things,” the offbeat comedy that had its world premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
The company will release the picture this summer. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“People, Places, Things” stars “Flight of the Conchords'” Jemaine Clement as a recently divorced father struggling to be a single parent, while trying to find a new partner. Regina Hall, Jessica Williams and Michael Chernus co-star, and Jim Strouse (“Grace is Gone”) directs.
Variety critic Ben Kenigsberg was not impressed, faulting the film for its goofy humor and describing it as “a sitcom ‘Kramer vs. Kramer.'”

Title: People, Places, Things Director: Jim Strouse Starring: Jemaine Clement, Regina Hall, Stephanie Allynne, Jessica Williams, Michael Chernus An actor can be enough of a reason to see a movie. Jemaine Clement was one of the two members of New Zealand folk parody duo Flight of the Conchords and starred in the HBO show of the same name. Since then, he has appeared in films like Eagle vs. Shark and Gentlemen Broncos, portraying odd, sarcastic individuals whose lines are almost always entertaining. Now, Clement anchors another film, Jim Strouse’s People, Places, Things, but with a distinctly different performance, equally hilarious but playing a normal guy just trying to get through [ Read More ]

People, Places, Things
Directed and written by James C. Strouse
Light laughs, heartwarming moments, and a slightly snarky commentary make up the majority of James C. Strouse’s adorable People, Places, Things. This is the perfect vehicle for the expertly awkward comedic timing of Jermaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords, What We Do in the Shadows). His stilted mannerisms and witty line deliveries make him a lovingly believable oddball. It focuses on a good man who has to make tough choices after his life is thrown into chaos.
Following his wife’s infidelity, Will Henry (Clement) is left to pick up the tattered pieces of his ego. It’s rare to see a man as the protagonist in a romantic comedy, and while Clement is just as hapless as any woman in the same situation, it’s notable that his career enhances his character instead of it just being »

Park City. Jim Strouse's "People, Places, Things" plays like an 86 minute pilot for an HBO comedy series and even in this age of "TV and Movies Have Achieved Parity," I doubt that's what anybody wants to hear. But if you know me, you know I mean it largely as a compliment. And what does that mean? Well, not too much happens in "People, Places, Things." It's a low-incident narrative that's supposed to be about emotional truth mixed with humor, but a lot of the comedic beats are being played rather broadly. It feels as if the basic plot elements and, particularly, characters are in place at the end of the film for an ongoing storyline that might be amusing. Give me this cast and some of these characters on a weekly basis for 10 or 13 half-hour episodes per season and I could grow to really like them. And speaking of growth, »

Sporting the most absurdly universalizing title since “Men, Women & Children,” “People, Places, Things” contains no insights into the human condition so profound as to warrant staking a claim on the world’s nouns. The cutesy story of a New York comicbook artist grappling with parenting after a breakup had its world-preem audience chuckling appreciatively at one-liners, but this mild crowdpleaser won’t be able to count on critics’ help in reaching people and places.
Writer-director James C. Strouse, credited here as Jim (and sans middle initial), got something of a pass with his mopey grief drama “Grace Is Gone,” which had a topical Iraq War premise; it won the audience and screenwriting awards in the dramatic competition at Sundance 2007. The similarly credulity-straining “People, Places, Things” is another type of movie that, for better or worse, often earns the derisive moniker “Sundance film.” It centers on a 40-year-old man experiencing a »

For several years now, Black women have had to contend with the media fueled stereotype of being perpetually single and unwed. (Apparently new statistics show that 50% of Black women will never get married.) Lifetime’s "With This Ring" tells the story of a group of girlfriends who make a pack to defy this label, and vow to get married (or engaged) in one year’s time. Not unlike David E. Talbert’s "Baggage Claim" (2013), "With This Ring" centers around three thirty-plus girlfriends who want their happily-ever-after at any cost. However, they soon discover that what they thought they wanted may not actually be worth having after all. Trista (Regina Hall) »

Chicago – This Thursday marks the beginning of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, and yours truly will be in attendance to cover the fest for HollywoodChicago.com. Last year, the Park City, Utah event introduced the world to its 2014-defining sensations like “Whiplash” and “Boyhood”.
Those titles followed in the paths of indie landmarks such as “sex, lies and videotape,” “Clerks,” “Hoop Dreams,” “American Movie,” “Memento,” “Frozen River,” “Winter’s Bone,” and “Fruitvale Station,” among many others.
In pursuit of new favorite films for a new year, I’ve composed a relatively solid schedule so that I can devour as much diverse Sundance goodness as possible. Narratives, documentaries, white supremacists, nasty babies, Neil Hamburger, Chiwetel Ejiofor, stolen cop cars, and much, much more are all in play. But with hopes that everything I witness is the next “Boyhood”-like zeitgeist, I’ll be sure to report back here on what’s worth, »
