A Brother and Sister Relationship

The plot of People Like UsImage is fairly simple. Sam (Chris Pine) has lost his father and therefore goes to visit his mother (Michelle Pfeiffer) after having deliberately missed the funeral. What he doesn’t know yet, is that his father left behind $ 150,000 for Sam’s half-sister’s (Elizabeth Banks) son. No one knew that he had a second family somehwere else. Sam could need the money himself, but choses to find out more about his sister Frankie before deciding about the money. In the process he gets really close to her and her son, and things get kind of tricky when he doesn’t tell them who he really is.

I think People Like Us is a lovely story about family, life and music. During the movie I felt really awkward as soon as Elizabeth Banks character started falling for Sam even though they were brother and sister, but they resolved it beautifully and I really enjoyed the ending of the film. I always like movies about dysfunctional families and stories that show that everyone has their own problems to deal with. Chris Pine and Elizabeth Banks were beyond terrific with their performances. Also, Olivia Wilde, who played Sam’s girlfriend did an amazing job. I can really recommend this if you enjoy heartfelt family-dramas!

Have you seen the movie? What do you think about it?

  1. Excellent blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out
    there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Kudos!
