Morwenna Banks’ script finds two lifelong friends being pulled in different directions when one becomes pregnant and the other falls ill.
Hardwicke previously commented, “When I met Morwenna Banks and read her script, I really felt her passion for this story. This is something she lived through. She managed to take real life and turn it into a powerful, laugh- and cry-out-loud screenplay.”
Barrymore hasn’t made too many appearances on the big screen recently, but her on-screen friendship with Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bridesmaids) was the only good thing about the Charlie’s Angels actress’s last film, the Adam Sandler rom-com Blended.
