Miss You Already

2016-04-08 08:07

What it's about:

An honest and powerful story that follows two best friends, Milly and Jess, as they navigate life’s highs and lows. Inseperable since their youth, 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-changing news. The film celebrates the bond of true friendship that ultimately can never be broken, even in life’s toughest moments.

What the critics thought:

Tonally, Miss You Already is a slapdash mess of achingly sincere moments and tasteless jokes.
Tasha Robinson - A.V. Club

Cancer. Childbirth. Friendship. If you’re not crying already, you will be before Miss You Already is over.
A. O. Scott - New York Times

Miss You Already tests patience with a barrage of peppy pop-tune montages that strain to put an uplifting spin on a grim trajectory.
Ben Kenigsberg – Variety

A whimsical dramedy that induces the same feeling as eating a cup of Pinkberry or sharing a bottle of chardonnay with a friend and watching E!
Conner Schwerdtfeger – Cinemablend

If “Miss You Already” works, it’s because of the cast. Collette, who shaved her head for the part, commits so deeply to the role of Milly that it’s hard to hate the contrivance of the plot.
Michael O'Sullivan - Washington Post

It’s a sad, emotive, important subject but it deserves a more detailed, heartfelt film than this.
Ian Freer – Empire

Vomit, scars, injections, drainage, MRIs—the raw physicality of disease is at the core of the director Catherine Hardwicke’s otherwise soft-pedalled drama of friendship and loss.
Richard Brody - The New Yorker
