Dakota Johnson, Jason Segel and Casey Affleck’s latest drama is Our Friend. A story about the support a couple gets from their best friend after they receive life-altering news.

Directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite; Additional key cast includes Gwendoline Christie, Cherry Jones and Marielle Scott.

I find myself surprised by this mix of actors is. It’s perhaps most surprising because of Segel, an actor I always picture first in comedy films (Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008), I Love You, Man (2009) and This is 40 2012), rather than dramas.

I’m in forJohnson’s performance and to see how this friendship triangle story is navigated. I say ‘triangle’ but there’s also the forth element; Segel’s character’s girlfriend who’s waiting for him to return.

Ahna O’Reilly, Violet McGraw, Reed Diamond, Azita Ghanizada, Michael Papajohn, Ritchie Montgomery, Isabella Kai, Chandler Head and Jennifer Pierce Mathus.

Our Friend Release Dates: January 22nd, 2021 (US)…

Light Of My life is a new drama written / directed by Casey Affleck.

Starring Affleck, Elisabeth Moss, Anna Pniowsky and Tom Bower, it’s the story of a father who disguises his daughter as his son in order to protect her after a plague wipes out most of the female population…

Talk about a nightmare situation for the few females who survive the plague. I need to see how this play out.

In A Ghost Story, Casey Affleck is a deceased husband who returns as a ghost in a white sheet to re-connect with his grieving wife (Rooney Mara)…

Written and directed by David Lowery, what I like most about this trailer, besides its main star Rooney Mara is the featured music. As for my feelings about the film, I have to confess that it all looks mighty depressing – unlike 1990’s Ghost. Therefore I’ll just make sure I’m in the right mood for it. By which I don’t mean a depressed mood. Merely a mood where I’m open to the ‘exploration of legacy, love, loss, and the enormity of existence’ – for approximately two hours.

A Ghost Story Release Dates: July 28th, 2017 (US)…

In Manchester By The Sea which stars Michelle Williams, Casey Affleck and Kyle Chandler, an uncle (Affleck) is forced to take care of his nephew (Chandler) who’s father just passed…

I’m interested in this story because I’ll no doubt learn a thing or two about what to do / what not to do in such predicaments. I also just want to see how uncle and nephew will end up helping each other grow.

One last reason I’m excited is the fact that the wonderfully talented Michelle Williams in a movie again. It’s simply been too long!

Directed by Kenneth Lonergan; Matthew Broderick, Tate Donovan and Gretchen Mol also star.

Manchester By The Sea Release Dates: November 18th, 2016 (US); January 13th,  2017 (UK); January 19th, 2017 (GER)…

Happy Film Loving 🙂
