The Humans is Stephan Karam’s directorial debut, based on his one-act play of the same name. It stars Richard Jenkins, Jaye Houdyshell, Amy Schumer, Beanie Feldstein, Steven Yeun, and June Squibb. The movie is set amidst a dysfunctional multi-generational family that gathers in a Manhatten apartment to celebrate Thanksgiving.
Brigid (played by Beanie Feldstein) and Richard (played by Steven Yeun) move into a new apartment and host Brigid’s family for Thanksgiving – her sister Aimee, her parents Erik and Deirdre as well as her grandmother Momo. There is a familiar blend of misconceptions, conflicts, resentments, and secrets.
Much like in the play, Karam’s writing grips the audience even as the story unfolds quietly. While his characters barely ever raise their voices, the sound design does a fantastic job of capturing the loud and intrusive collection of bangs, creaks, and thuds. Karam is known for treating his family dramas like horror, a quotidian spiral shrouded in an ever-creeping and unknown darkness.
