The Humans (15)

Stephen Karam explores the hidden dread of a family and the love that binds them together in this adaptation of his Tony Award-winning Broadway play.

Erik Blake (Richard Jenkins) has gathered three generations of his Pennsylvania family to celebrate Thanksgiving at his daughter Brigid’s (Beanie Feldstein) apartment in lower Manhattan. As darkness falls outside the crumbling building, mysterious things start to go bump in the night and family tensions reach a boiling point.

The Guardian said of The Humans: ‘Stephen Karam’s Tony-winning play makes the leap to film with ease, an extraordinarily well-acted, uncomfortably intimate look at a family at Thanksgiving.’
