People Places Things

PeoplePlacesThings 550"Ceaselessly entertaining, witty, and sentimental." –

When graphic novelist Will Henry accidentally walks in on his wife with another man, his life officially begins to suck. As he muddles through single fathering and teaching college, a defeated Will sits up nights at his drafting table, illustrating his frustrations and loneliness—aptly symbolized by an ever-growing brick wall jammed between him and his family. Jemaine Clement's (FLIGHT OF THE CONCORDS, WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS) special brand of nerdy cluelessness is utterly charming and soulful in this understated comedy that revels in the awkwardness of trying to create a new happy ending. (U.S., 2015, 85m, Gravitas Ventures, DCP)
