Those People

Directed by Joey Kuhn

USA / 2015 / 89 mins / English


On Manhattan’s gilded Upper East Side, a young painter, Charlie, finds the man of his dreams in an older pianist from across the globe. If only Charlie weren’t secretly in love with his own manipulative best friend, Sebastian, who is embroiled in his father’s Bernie Madoff-like financial scandal. In the wake of Sebastian’s notoriety, their tight-knit group of friends must confront the new realities of adulthood. This film is co-presented by the Lakeside Pride Music Ensembles.
