Jermaine Clement is having a bad life in ‘People, Places, Things’ trailer

People Places Things

People Places Things, the new indie dramedy from James C. Strouse (Grace is Gone), tries to answer the eternal question: Why does life suck?

For Will, played by Jermaine Clement in what looks to be a layered comedic turn, it sucks because his wife (Stephanie Allynne) slept with another guy and ultimately breaks up with him, splitting the custody of their two young daughters. One of his students (Jessica Williams) introduces him to her single mother (Regina Hall) and Will slowly puts his life back together. Here’s the full synopsis via Collider:

Will Henry (Jemaine Clement) is a graphic novelist and professor in NYC. At his adorable twin girls’ fifth birthday party, Will’s life is turned upside down when he walks in on the mother of his children and longtime girlfriend, Charlie (Stephanie Allynne), with their friend Gary (Michael Chernus). One year later, Will is still alone and trying to put his life back together. He finds unexpected challenges when his talented student Kat (Jessica Williams) tries to set Will up with her accomplished mother Diane (Regina Hall). In this thoughtful comedy, Will is forced to navigate the unknown landscape of single fatherhood and dating in New York City, while remaining an inspiration for his students and coming to terms with himself both as a father as an artist.

It would be easy to say People, Places, Things has a heartwarming, pleasant, and cute vibe from the trailer alone, and Lane Scarberry can attest in her Sundance review. She also gives notices to Clement’s performance, writing, “This is the perfect vehicle for the expertly awkward comedic timing of Jemaine Clement (Flight of the ConchordsWhat We Do in the Shadows). His stilted mannerisms and witty line deliveries make him a lovingly believable oddball. It focuses on a good man who has to make tough choices after his life is thrown into chaos.”

People, Places, Things opens August 14. Watch the trailer below:
