Perpetually the romantic, Charlie has spent much of his young life in unrequited love with his best friend Sebastian—the golden boy of Manhattan. Though from very different worlds, their connection has remained unwavering through the years and rife with shared memories, both painful and lovely. When suddenly faced with the monumental fallout of his father’s financial scandal, Sebastian demands even more of Charlie’s attention, complicating Charlie’s budding love affair with a traveling pianist. Accustomed to getting his way, Sebastian begins a dangerous downward spiral, while Charlie struggles to discover the independence and artistic enlightenment that has long been out of his reach. While every scene evokes the complexity of real relationships through thoughtful camerawork and design, this film truly shines when it focuses on the details: Intimate moments in the bedroom, beautiful costumes in rich hues, stolen glances and tears. Those People tells a familiar story of loyalty, but in a way that is uniquely beautiful.
