Ema Horvath, Devon Sawa, Yeardley Smith, with John Ales and Alyssa Milano

Join us for a special in-theatre screening of the gripping coming-of-age drama, Who Are You People. An exclusive talkback withScreenwriter/Director Ben Epstein moderated by Melissa Pianko, Executive Producer and Mamaroneck resident, will immediately follow the film.

Sixteen-year-old Alex Fixel has always felt out of sync; with her affluent Portland parents, with her private school peers, and with herself. When Alex’s parents interrupt her impetuous attempt to seduce her high school English teacher, they plan to ship her off to boarding school. But before Alex leaves, she finds an old letter in her mother’s desk indicating her biological father is not the man who raised her; instead he’s a small town mechanic — and former convict — named Karl Hendricks. Alex escapes her new boarding school and tracks down her father. Over the next week, Alex and Karl’s fragile and volatile attempts at connection tenuously blossom into a sincere father-daughter bond… Until Alex discovers the devastating truth about her roots, threatening to destroy both her old and new family.

Who Are You People is one of my favorite dramas of the year. Epstein’s plot is compelling, and his character development is brilliant. But taking a step back, the film represents the lives of real people who have made massive mistakes and are trying to move on as best they can.” – filmthreat.com
