Thanksgiving is the one day of the year by tradition for the entire dysfunctional family to gather to air their accolades and issues.

In The Humans, the family dinner is no different from real life as it displays the emotional side of family gatherings.

Based on the Tony Award-winning play, the film follows Erik Black, who gathered three generations of his Pennsylvania family to celebrate Thanksgiving at his daughter’s apartment in lower Manhattan. As darkness falls outside and eerie things start to go bump into the night, the group’s deepest fears are laid bare. Haunting and piercingly funny, The Humans explores the hidden dread of family and the love that binds them together.

The all-star cast includes Richard Jenkins (The Shape of Water, The Visitor), Jayne Houdyshell (The Bounty Hunter, Little Women), Amy Schumer (Trainwreck, I Feel Pretty), Beanie Feldstein (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, Booksmart), Steven Yeun (Minari, Okja), and June Squibb (Nebraska, In & Out). Stephen Karam adapted his own Tony Award-winning play and makes it his directorial feature film debut.

Although it appears the film reveals nothing that you cannot experience in real life, the film is an award-winning play with extraordinary performers. It recently made its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival with quite a buzz. So, there may be something special about this film.

It does look like a touching film that everyone brings their honesty and personal issues to the Thanksgiving dinner table. Not to mention, it takes place in a New York City apartment that seems to have a mind on its own.

If you’re into play adaptations and independent cinema, then put The Humans as a film to watch later this year.

A24’s The Humans releases in theaters and streams on Showtime on November 24.
