Adapted from the Tony Award-winning play of the same name, The Humans is a sophisticated and haunting family drama.

Featuring a pitch-perfect ensemble cast including Richard JenkinsAmy Schumer, Beanie FeldsteinSteven YeunJune Squibb and Jayne Houdyshell, reprising her Tony Award-winning role from the original Broadway production, the story is impressively transferred to the screen by playwright, and first time writer/director, Stephen Karam.

Erik (Jenkins) has gathered three generations of his family to celebrate Thanksgiving at his daughter’s (Feldstein) apartment in Lower Manhattan.

As darkness falls outside and eerie things start to go bump in the night, the group’s deepest fears are laid bare.

Piercingly funny and insightful, The Humans explores the hidden dread of a family and the love that binds them together.
