Other People (2016): Chris Kelly’s Semi-Autobiographical Directing Debut (LGBTQ)

Chris Kelly’s semi-autobiographical directing debut, Other People, is both funny and sad.

A struggling gay New York comedy writer, fresh off a breakup and in the midst of the worst year of his life, returns to Sacramento to care for his dying mother.

Strong lead performances by Jesse Plemons and Molly Shannon are well matched in this impressive and affecting serio-comedy.
