“The Humans” is a study on the complexities of well, us, humans!  And it was so eloquently and powerfully presented by writer/director Stephen Karam.  Follow the Blakes as they navigate through Thanksgiving amidst family tension and drama.  I spoke with the patriarch of the family Erik played by Richard Jenkins and mom Deirdre (the great Jayne Houdyshell).

“The Humans” arrives in theaters and Showtime the day before Thanksgiving, November 24th.

Writer/director Stephen Karam explains how he adapted his own Tony Award-winning play for the big screen.  He also elaborates on the creative choices he made in directing the film, and where he got his inspiration for writing the play.
