Our Friend tells the moving and extraordinary true story of the Teague family – formed by journalist Matt (Casey Affleck), his lively wife Nicole (Dakota Johnson), and their young daughters – and how their lives are turned upside down by the heartbreaking news that Nicole has terminal cancer. While it becomes too much for Matt to care for his wife and parent, the couple’s best friend Dane Faucheux (Jason Segel) offers to go to their house to help. As Dane puts his life on hold to be with friends, the impact of his radical decision turns out to be far stronger and deeper than anyone could ever have imagined.
