‘Our Friend’ set for digital release through STX Films – new trailer

by Paul Heath

A new trailer has arrived for the imminent UK release of Our Friend, a lovely little film that I managed to catch at the Toronto International Film Festival a couple of years ago (as The Friend). STX Films will land the film on digital from 18th February. Casey Affleck, Dakota JOhnson and Jason Segal lead out the main cast.

After receiving life-altering news, a couple finds unexpected support from their best friend, who puts his own life on hold and moves into their family home, bringing an impact much greater and more profound than anyone could have imagined. 

In my original review, I said that the film is ‘eloquently presented by Gabriela Cowperthwaite (director or Meagan Leavey and producer on the superb documentary Blackfish) and her team. Brad Ingelsby’s script is both sympathetic and full of compassion and I was completely and utterly caught up in it, even if it felt a little manipulative in places. The Friend was a delightful surprise, one that I expected to walk away from completely devastated by. The opposite happened. It’s a great piece of work.’

The film was released Stateside some time back but it’s great to see that the film is finally getting a UK debut. It will be available on digital from 14th February.

Here’s the trailer.
