This summer Dreamworks Pictures will release a new film starring Christopher Pine and Elizabeth Banks entitled, “People Like Us“.
The film isÂ a drama/comedy about family, inspired by true events, starring Chris Pine (â€œStar Trekâ€) as Sam, a twenty-something, fast-talking salesman, whose latest deal collapses on the day he learns that his father has suddenly died. Against his wishes, Sam is called home, where he must put his father’s estate in order and reconnect with his estranged family. In the course of fulfilling his father’s last wishes, Sam uncovers a startling secret that turns his entire world upside down: He has a 30-year-old sister Frankie whom he never knew about (Elizabeth Banks). As their relationship develops, Sam is forced to rethink everything he thought he knew about this familyâ€”and re-examine his own life choices in the process.
