It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are.

i'll be the first to admit that the trailer for people like us is garbage. and while a nice photo, the instagram-filtered movie poster above doesn't really command interest either. but after seeing it a few weeks ago with little expectations, i walked out completely intrigued by the story and it's characters. after listening to the cast break down the movie's various emotional layers and interviewing the folks behind the soundtrack (shoutout to A.R. rahman, the first academy award winner i've ever talked to on the phone!), i'm really pulling for this movie to find an audience - even if it's just through redbox.

if you're curious about the features i wrote, just click the titles - understanding 'people like us' and history & collaborations: the music behind 'people like us'.
