  • Worth watching. It's not a favorite, because it almost wallows a bit too much in that sadness...but it works, with a few rays of light to open things up a little bit.

  • I was tempted to dismissOur Friendas just another movie about a loved one's battle with a fatal disease. Then I watched it. Yes, it's a tearjerker, but it's derived from a first-person article and has three exceptional performances

  • Some things remain a mystery. If we were a little bit better as people, this decent, clear-eyed movie hints, they might not.

  • Its strength really lies in its ability to recognize grief, in all of its raggedness and messiness, and not shy away from it.

  • While "Our Friend" is effective as drama - the acting is uniformly excellent - and is beautifully shot, the film pulls its punches to its, and the audience's, detriment.

    January 24, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Gabriela Cowperthwaite imbues the film with enormous compassion for its characters and the lead actors, especially Segel, bring endless warmth and humanity to their roles.
