Our Review: 
My husband is always on the look out for great character dramas and this movie is definitely one of them. In People Like Us, Sam is left with the large sum of money his father left for him. He is asked to find his half sister to give her half of the money. Through the journey of finding his sister and bonding with her, he always finds himself. This movie is about living your life despite whatever hardship life deals you. The dialogues between the characters are moving. After we were done with the movie, we reflected on our own lives and realized that there is no such thing as "normal" family with "normal" lives. Everyone has a story to tell and everyone's story is compelling. This is a great movie that we recommend checking out.
