Read Hammer to Nail's wonderful review of Those People here:
"...Those People is also a benchmark of advancement in cinema themes. It’s one of the first times, in my recollection, in which a filmmaker is able to tell a story about gay men wherein the focus isn’t on their sexuality. Obviously, we still have a long way to go as a society. But this truly universal tale of loving assholes, parental disillusionment, and being dragged, kicking and screaming, into adulthood, is a cinematic baby step in the right direction."
