'You People' Movie Review
Exploring race and culture, love, and family divides is perhaps not what you’d expect from a film that is also trying to be a romantic comedy. Yet ‘You People’, co-written by/starring Jonah Hill and co-written/directed by ‘Black-ish’ creator Kenya Barris, pulls off the trick with just a couple of spinning plates dropped. At its core, this is the story of Ezra (Hill), working in finance but dreaming of putting more of his energy into the podcast he hosts with Mo (Sam Joy). Unlucky in love despite his pushy Jewish mother Shelley’s (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) attempts to set him up with likely women from synagogue, he’s looking for more out of life.
