In The Humans, the Blake family gathers to celebrate Thanksgiving at daughter Brigid’s new apartment in downtown Manhattan. As darkness falls outside, mysterious things start to go bump in the night and family tensions reach a boiling point. Haunting production design and beautiful cinematography expertly capture the atmosphere of pervasive dread in this screen adaptation of director Stephen Karma’s Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning play. An all-star cast – Jayne Houdyshell, Amy Schumer, Beanie Feldstein and Oscar nominees Richard Jenkins, June Squibb and Steven Yeun – round out this powerful portrait of the human condition.
