Sundance 2016: 'Other People' Review

To those who say that Other People isn't as good as James White: You are absolutely right. And yet, this mom-dying-of-cancer/twentysomething-is-spiritually-adrift comedy-drama has enough small, good moments that I found it affecting. I especially like Molly Shannon as the mom with only months to live. Between Other People and Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, she's made a little niche for herself playing sympathetic moms in forgettable Sundance films. My review is up at Screen International.
