Our Friend is based on an esquire article centering around the journey of a married couple and their best friend. When one of them is diagnosed with terminal cancer the movie ping pongs between past and present documenting the conflicts and triumphs that all the characters endure. It does it all with a light touch maybe a little too light where it almost comes off as a sugar-coated story rather than a realistic journey through cancer treatment. The cast is doing all they can while Casey Affleck and Dakota Johnson frequently bounce between resentment and joy.
It’s the cinematic return of Jason Siegel that brings it all together his effortless charm and jovial nature make you believe that he is the glue of this tumultuous time. The emotional weight of the story “Our Friend” is a light tear-jerker for those that might want it right away.
