Erik Blake has gathered three generations of his Pennsylvania family to celebrate Thanksgiving at his daughter’s pre-war duplex in lower Manhattan. As darkness falls outside the crumbling building and eerie things start to go bump in the night, the Blake family’s deepest fears are laid bare. Adapted from the Tony Award-winning play, The Humans is writer-director Stephen Karam’s piercingly funny and haunting debut film that explores the hidden dread of a family and the love that binds them together.
The Humans is an A24 release.
