Miss You Already – Official International Trailer #1

miss-you-alreadyMiss You Already is described as a film where the friendship between two life-long girlfriends is put to the test when one starts a family (Jess – Drew Barrymore) and the other falls ill (Milly – Toni Collette).

With Milly contracting breast cancer, this movie, directed by Catherine Hardwicke, and written by Morwenna Banks – so I’m suprised how dull and twee this looks, since it comes across as very so-so comedy/drama, pulling all the usual cliches and appears to be not a patch on the real-life-based recent Sheridan Smith BBC production The C Word. In fact, it looks like Hollywood has taken that powerful drama, chewed it up and spat it out, and Miss You Already is the end result.

Perhaps it’s time Hollywood employed Sheridan Smith!

Milly and Jess have been best friends forever. They’ve shared everything since they were kids – secrets, clothes, laughs, substances, boyfriends… now they are trying to be grown-ups. Milly has a high-flying job and lives in a beautiful townhouse with husband Kit and their two kids. Jess is a town planner and she and her boyfriend Jago live on a bohemian houseboat on a London canal. Their friendship is as rock solid as ever. That is until Jess struggles to have a much longed-for baby and Milly finds out she has breast cancer. How do you share that?

The film also stars Dominic Cooper, Charlotte Hope, Jacqueline Bisset, Honor Kneafsey, Tyson Ritter, Paddy Considine and Noah Huntley, and I’m not missing a minute watching this dross.

Miss You Already is released in the UK on September 25th.
