What do Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Christopher Walken, Kate McKinnon, Steve Coogan and Jacki Weaver have in common? The answer is Irreplaceable You, Netflix new romantic drama.
It’s a cast list to die for, with two Emmy winners, one Oscar winner and one Oscar nominee – not bad going for a directorial debut. That was enough for Veep veteran Stephanie Laing’s first feature to attract the attention of the streaming giant, which snapped up the worldwide rights to the project last year in a multi-million deal. The film also stars Game of Thrones’ Michael Huisman, Atlanta’s Brian Tyree Henry and Veep’s Tim Simons.
The drama follows Abbie (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) and Sam (Michiel Huisman), best friends since childhood who are engaged to be married, and whose tranquil New York lives come crashing down when Abbie receives an unexpected diagnosis. Faced with the prospect of an uncertain timeline, Abbie begins a search for a new love to take care of Sam. Along the way, Abbie makes unlikely friendships with Myron (Christopher Walken), Kate (Kate McKinnon) and Mitch (Steve Coogan), whose one thing in common is that they focus on living, while they are dying. Ultimately, the film asks the question: how do you say goodbye?
