Universal Pictures released the trailer for the indie drama Our Friend directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite and starring Jason Segel, Dakota Johnson and Casey Affleck. Our Friend, (previously titled as “The Friend”) made its world premiere at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival, and arrives January 22 in theaters and on demand.

Our Friend tells the inspiring and extraordinary true story of the Teague family – journalist Matt (Casey Affleck), his vibrant wife Nicole (Dakota Johnson) and their two young daughters – and how their lives are upended by Nicole’s heartbreaking diagnosis of terminal cancer. As Matt’s responsibilities as caretaker and parent become increasingly overwhelming, the couple’s best friend Dane Faucheux (Jason Segel) offers to come and help out. As Dane puts his life on hold to stay with his friends, the impact of this life altering decision proves greater and more profound than anyone could have imagined.
