"With a cast comprised almost entirely of people of color, many unfamiliar faces, 'Everyday People' explores issues of gentrification, challenges notions of race and stereotypes, and considers how money affects the lives of a group of people who work together...

With a gentle, serious tone, McKay's film toys with the stereotypes that shape our own expectations and imagines the lives of people we might very well encounter on a daily basis: a tough girl cashier, an uptight urban professional, a preaching activist pavement-pounder, an emerging female poet, an eager-to-please restaurant host, a surly dishwasher, and a teenager heading to college."
