Determined to live the American dream, Brigid (Beanie Feldstein) and Richard (Steven Yeun) have recently rented their first apartment in Manhattan. Despite the outlandish rent, their new home is dark, dank, and undeniably creepy. Even so, the young couple have decided to host Brigid’s family’s annual Thanksgiving celebration. Traveling from Scranton, Pennsylvania to visit the couple in their new home, Brigid’s parents Deirdre (Jayne Houdyshell) and Erik (Richard Jenkins) arrive with Erik’s mother Momo (June Squibb) and Brigid’s sister Aimee (Amy Schumer) in tow. With a mother who is far too critical, a father who drinks too much, a grandmother who suffers from dementia, and a sister who has recently suffered a painful breakup, Brigid and Richard’s first Thanksgiving in their new home is destined to be unforgettable.  As darkness falls outside, a sense of dread settles inside as eerie noises coupled with the gradual disclosure of personal secrets and micro-tragedies sets everyone’s nerves on edge. With each individual’s deepest fears laid bare, will the love that binds this family together be enough to give them the strength they need to carry on? Adapted from his Tony Award-winning play, “The Humans” is a 2021 American psychological drama directed by Stephen Karam.
