Sundance Comedy 'People, Places, Things' Acquired By The Film Arcade

After earning rave reviews out of its Sundance premiere last month, Jim Strouse’s “People, Places, Things” has been acquired for U.S. distribution by The Film Arcade.

Starring Jemaine Clement (“Flight of the Conchords”) and Regina Hall (“Scary Movie”), “People, Places, Things” is a poignant and relatable comedy about a recently divorced father who must now navigate the unknown landscape of single fatherhood and dating in New York City, while letting go of the wife who left him. It’s the third film directed by Strouse, whose debut “Grace is Gone” earned two Golden Globe nominations and various festival prizes.

“We’re big fans of Jim’s earlier films and he impressed us once again with ‘People, Places, Things,’ which is a witty and refreshingly honest look at modern day relationships,” said The Film Arcade’s Andy Bohn. “Jemaine Clement is as funny and charming as ever and we can’t wait to share Jim’s film with audiences.”

“‘People, Places, Things’ is the type of movie I’ve been working my entire career to make.” said writer/director Jim Strouse.

The Film Arcade is planning a summer 2015 release.
