Toni Collette is one of the most capable actresses working today. And paired with the always charming Drew Barrymore, you can’t (hopefully!) go wrong. I always look forward to female-driven films and Miss You Already looks to be a heart-wrenching, but hopeful and happy portrayal of two best friends coping with everything life has ever thrown them.
Directed by Catherine Hardwicke (Red Riding Hood) with a screenplay by Morwenna Banks, the first trailer for the film explores Collette and Barrymore’s friendship, the uplifting moments and the not-so-uplifting moments.
You can watch the entire trailer below as well as check out the full synopsis. Also starring Dominic Cooper, Miss You Already is an official Toronto International Film Festival selection in the World Premiere Category and will open nationwide November 6.
Synopsis: 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.
