It is at all times happy to see generations of the best artists come together for a film or series. You People is coming to Netflix to welcome us.
Netflix will be crossing 40 years of comedy, in addition to crossing into some sensitive territory, with their upcoming film You People.
The film is likely to delve deep into the critical racial problems that have unfortunately carried over from generation to generation in today’s daily news.
It bears the hallmarks of a race-swapped version of Sydney Poitier’s classic Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner and a freeze-frame of still-uncontrolled blackout and cluelessness in 2023. The tone by writers Hill and Kenya Barris (Black) turns out to be on the brighter side of a tough story based on the trailer.
