Other People's Children.

Grieving the loss of her problematic father, a young Los Angeles woman drifts into an even more turbulent relationship with a homeless addict in "Other People's Children." For a while, this earnest drama doesn't articulate its characters' psychologies enough to make that situation particularly compelling, or convincing, though Adrienne Harris' script is handled with some skill by debuting feature helmer Liz Hinlein. But ultimately there's an intriguing arc here that rewards patience. The film opened Jan. 1 at New York's Village East Cinemas, with a digital launch following on Jan. 5.
