It’s nice to see more films using strong female led casts. Miss You Already is a cancer tale between two friends in the same vein as 50/50, but instead of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogan it’s Toni Collette and Drew Barrymore. It looks good, though we probably won’t be prepared for the end. Ever. Drew Barrymore’s crying face is the stuff of nightmares.
Miss You Already is out in the UK from 25th September 2015.
When life falls apart, friends keep it together.
They say opposites attract. Milly (Toni Collette) is the woman who has everything: a successful career; a rock-star husband and two beautiful children. Her best friend is Jess (Drew Barrymore), she works in a community garden; lives in a boathouse with her boyfriend Jago and desperately wants a baby.
Friends since childhood Jess and Milly can’t remember a time they didn’t share everything – secrets, clothes, even boyfriends, their differences are the glue that binds them together. That is until Milly is hit with the life changing news that she has breast cancer and needs Jess’s support more than ever.
As Jess tries to balance her own life as well as being there for Milly it is only a matter of time before the pressure on their bond takes its toll.
