Everyday People - storytelling with heart
12 January 2005 | by (berkeley, california) – See all my reviews

This is a bare bones film. Plain and simple. It begins with the morning shift at Raskin's restaurant in Brooklyn; and ends when the place shuts down that night. Life goes on over the course of an 18 hour day.

Just like the title, the viewer glimpses lives of ordinary folk. Dramatically structured to involve our interest in the passing moments of those lives. They're young and old, black and yellow.brown and white. All of them sympathetically drawn, not good or bad, but in the hands of director Jim McKay, rendered thereafter without judgment. And done so well for me that this little film came to be about real people. Caught in the context of their neighborhood in transition. Most unaware of the changes to come while others are banking on them. For the rich and poor, better or worse?

It'd be easy to label Everyday People boring. Speaking personally, it's less about labels than what a viewer brings to the experience. And I say this knowing I can fail to bring the proper suspension of disbelief to another person's work. But after watching Everyday People, I'm reminded of some other good movies, featuring an ensemble of players, involved in a community of interests. The same, but different.

There's Ice Cube's on going love affair with Barbershops (I & II are both laugh out loud and touching). And another, likely harder to get, but worth it: Robert Redford's adaptation of the John Nichol's novel, The Milagro Beanfield War.
