People Like Us Blu-Ray / DVD Review

Synopsis: From DreamWorks Pictures, the studio that brought you The Help, comes the smart and witty drama People Like Us, featuring an all-star cast, including Chris Pine (Star Trek), Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games), award-winning Michelle Pfeiffer and Olivia Wilde. Sam (Pine) is a twenty-something, fast-talking salesman whose latest deal collapses the day he learns his father has suddenly died. Against his wishes, Sam is called home to put his father’s estate in order and reconnect with his estranged family. While there, he uncovers a startling secret that turns his entire world upside down — he has a 30-year-old sister he never knew existed. Complete with bonus material that reveals how people like us became People Like Us, this is an inspirational and touching movie everyone can relate to.

Review: People Like Us is a complicated, but ultimately heartwarming film about a young, cocky guy that learns of his secret sister after his father dies.   The lead role is played by Chris Pine, who we haven't seen much of since Star Trek.  He does  good job playing a character with multiple domensions.  The sister is played by Elizabeth Banks, who usually does comedy roles.  Its nice to see her flex her acting chops in a different realm.  This film is a family drama that leaves the viewer feeling good.  We highly recommend it.
