Storyline

This film offers a glimpse of the self-destructive lifestyles of three childhood friends. "Peoples" is a late coming of age story and a searing drama of a forgotten corner of American life. After spending only one semester away at college, Oliver Anderson is back in his hometown living with his wealthy and conservative parents. He is reunited with his best friends, Patrick and Sorn, for one last summer of wild fun. Fueled by the desire to avoid responsibility at all costs, the trio has a simple set of priorities: get drunk, chase women, and cause trouble. As the weeks go by, this reckless routine quickly becomes self-destructive. A succession of dysfunctional relationships coupled with substance abuse and an identity crisis lead the gang to realize it's time to grow up. Written by KBC Media Relations

Hi-8 Quality quasi-decent take on contemporary parent-sponsored 20-something malaise.
14 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kind-of a cross between every other college-age coming-of-age movie and the Saddle Club. The realism to the script (if there was a strict script), film-type, and tight camera work might make the film worth watching. The actors really could be any contemporary knuckle-head kids somewhere between high school, college, and general delinquency funded by mom and dad. Almost an entertaining documentary or session of "reality TV".

I almost wonder if the actors weren't taking some percentage of the drugs they were portraying to have taken. They certainly understand the mindset they were supposed to be portraying. Possibly not to the extent that Depp and DelToro did, but enough for this film. Perhaps the most cogent, coherent character was "The black guy"(TM). But rather than serve as a plot device, he held the film together. He's probably the most respectable youth character in the film, though this doesn't say very much.

Many issues are approached by the film's writing: Spoiled kids & botched parenting, drug use and abuse, racism, social classes, and sexuality/interpersonal relationships. In fact, this might be required viewing for parents of children in the late teen/early twenties set who have not yet found their niche. It's less contrived and more effective than films like "Thirteen", "Havoc", "Bully" or "Manic", though in the same vein. Possibly a statement on today's youth who's parents give them just enough financial support to keep them from having to learn responsibility or even parents who give enough to allow their kids to destroy themselves for lack of actual any sense of realistic need or direction.
