I'd initially avoided Those People due to some well written reviews on IMDB from people who essentially hated the film or at best found it lacking. But I eventually decide to give the film a shot and was quite surprised.

The story is mainly about one character, art school student Charlie, finally choosing to get out of the shadow and influence of his best friend, rich kid Sebastian, a guy he loves dearly but who is an adult spoiled brat. (In case you missed it: Hint hint, nudge nudge...Brideshead, yeah?)

Other People has an intimate, almost claustrophobic look to it, most scenes happen at night and often in small, dark toned interiors. The film is set in the fall and winter, a great time to watch it.

A totally unbelievable story handicapped by the poor writing and sloppy direction, both done by Joey Kuhn . It had more bad acting than a daytime soap. Haaz Sleiman, who had the thankless role of the Lebanese pianist with the very un-Lebanese sounding name of Tim Mallek was totally wasted. Sleiman was so devilishly handsome and funny as MoMo in Nurse Jackie it was sad to see his many talents wasted.

Set among New York's gay elite I wish I could say I liked this film more, as it has a VERY attractive cast and is well acted, but I found the story hard to follow, particularly the background of a Madoff style swindle that is crippling the hero's best friend/lover. But Jonathan Gordon as the young painter , Charlie, is a dish and has a winsome quality that is very endearing. However I didn't find any chemistry between him and the pianist who supposedly sweeps his heart away. Recommended for eye candy.
