About the Movie

A struggling New York City comedy writer, fresh from breaking up with his boyfriend, moves to Sacramento to help his sick mother. Living with his conservative father and younger sisters, David feels like a stranger in his childhood home. As his mother worsens, he tries to convince everyone (including himself) he’s “doing okay.”

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Inherently melodramatic, the film belongs to Ms. Shannon, who vividly etches Joanne in a full end-of-life range: funny, loving, angry, regretful, exhausted, resigned. – Daniel M. Gold, New York Times, Sep 8, 2016

Fresh: Kelly's someone who knows that the biggest laughs are often the hardest to earn-the ones that come when the punchlines are delivered without a safety net. – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 8, 2016

Fresh: Strong performances from Molly Shannon and Jesse Plemons help this often flailing cancer-themed seriocomedy find its footing. – Justin Chang, Variety, Jan 22, 2016

Fresh: Emotions run deep and wide here; anyone who's ever lost a parent, longed for love and acceptance, or tried to find his or her true self should easily relate. It's a terrific film. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Sep 8, 2016

Saw this at a film festival last month and it was amazing! The acting is uniformly great but Molly Shannon deserves all the praise as a mother dying of cancer. The movie expertly balances the expectedly sad plot with a mighty sense of humor. Cannot recommend enough!


This is an amazing movie. I laughed, I cried, and I laughed again. Molly Shannon and D'Arcy Carden (who is also in NBC's "The Good Place") are inspirational. SEE THIS MOVIE.

Gorgeous Film

Other People is a genuinely funny, sweet and sad film. Molly Shannon gives the performance of her career. Jesse Plemons slowly seduces you into loving his David. The rest of the cast is just terrific.
