Dakota Johnson is a wife and mother of two, diagnosed with terminal cancer in Our Friend. Her husband played by Casey Affleck does his best to maintain their life and love but he is overwhelmed, dealing with responsibilities, and new feelings at the prospect of losing her.
His best friend played by Jason Segel moves in with them to lighten the load as her strength fails. Their time together is a symbol of hope in which there can be optimism, love and connection. He helps them heal and himself as he accepts responsibility for them. Bring your tissues. What She Said’ Anne Brodie spoke with Segel and Johnson in pre-pandemic Toronto.
Our Friend is available on TVOD Jan 22nd.
