Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
Other People feels like a very personal movie, a film written with a lot of love and bravery. Jesse Plemmons and Molly Shannon both really shine here, bringing a lot of heart to these difficult roles. The script is warm, funny, raw, heartbreaking and I think, ultimately, cathartic.
Final Grade: B-
Thanks for reading!
