If many awards season movies and festival flicks promise serious, sombre viewing, it’s good to remember that there’s always room for looser, livelier fare, and one such picture is Catherine Hardwicke‘s “Miss You Already.” It’s slated to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next week, and a brand new trailer is here.
Starring Toni Collette, Drew Barrymore, Dominic Cooper, Paddy Considine, Tyson Ritter and Jacqueline Bisset, the film follows the ups and down of two total besties through marriage, children and illness. Here’s the official synopis:
MISS YOU ALREADY is an honest and powerful story following two best friends, Milly (Toni Collette) and Jess (Drew Barrymore), as they navigate life’s highs and lows. Inseparable since they were young girls, they can’t remember a time they didn’t share everything –secrets, clothes, even boyfriends — but nothing prepares them for the day Milly is hit with life-altering news. A story for every modern woman, MISS YOU ALREADY celebrates the bond of true friendship that ultimately can never be broken, even in life’s toughest moments.
“Miss You Already” opens in the U.K. on September 25th and in the U.S. on November 6th. Could it be a sleeper charmer? Watch below.
