The Humans Fund

Though the buzz on this one has been strangely -- one might even say eerily -- quiet even though it hits theaters and Showtime tomorrow, I think that The Humans (based on the Tony-winning play) starring Richard Jenkins, Beanie Feldstein, Amy Schumer, and Steven Yeun, is a terrific way to spend a chunk of your holiday. Especially if your family's anything like mine, where talking only makes things worse not better. Finally a movie for my specific dysfunction! I wrote up my thoughts on the film last night over at The Film Experience so go and read them. Please. And thanks. I guess I have to say "thanks" two days before Thanksgiving and when talking about a Thanksgiving movie at that!

I saw it back in what I think was its first ever production at the American Theater Company in Chicago. That was a really special and intimate performance and I'm really looking forward to seeing it again as a movie.

I loved this movie! I’m sad it seems to be going under the radar.
