Fun Size Review: His People (1925)

Should immigrants assimilate? How much? What about the generation gap? These questions are rarely tackled in modern films but His People handles them with grace and humanity. It’s a charming film that strikes a delicate balance between drama and humor, plus it manages to treat its immigrant characters (Jewish and Irish, mostly) as human beings rather than walking stereotypes. Not to be missed.

How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.

The Americanized children learn to appreciate their Old World parents and the film ends with a family reunion.

If it were a dessert it would be: Chocoflan. Pure comfort food that manages to combine ingredients everyone loves in an unexpected and delightful way.

Availability: Released on DVD.
