Anyone that knows Alex Kurtzman's work (Transformers, Cowboys and Aliens) will be surprised by the real-life sincerity of his upcoming film, People Like Us. It's the story of an in-debt business man who, after his father's death, finds out about a half-sister he never knew he had.
Chris Pine leads the cast with a performance that will have you consistently cheering for Sam, even in his darkest moments. It's a story of transformation, acceptance, and like the title promises, for all of us.
People Like Us is showing at SIFF this afternoon (June 5) at 4pm at the Egyptian Theatre. The movie opens in theaters everywhere on June 29. Click here to watch the trailer.
