Get a Sneak Peek of Drew Barrymore in "Miss You Already"

There are few things as refreshing as seeing an accurate portrayal of female friendship on the big screen.

Director Catherine Hardwicke honors this sacred female-centric bond in her new film, "Miss You Already."

Set in England, the film follows the lives of two best friends, Jess (Drew Barrymore) and Milly (Toni Collette), as they navigate the highs and lows of life, including the intertwined life-altering events that drive the action of the film: Jess' fertility issues and Milly's cancer diagnosis.

In the midst of celebrating long-delayed good news, Jess must come to terms with embracing the positivity of her newfound pregnancy while also supporting and caring for her sick, increasingly difficult friend Milly.

Milly, on the other hand, must learn to fight her developing "cancer bully" persona while remaining loving and true to herself and those around her in the process. 

Though the film is narrated by Barrymore's character, both Jess and Milly share a moving performance that appropriately embellishes the backdrop of the film's story. 


Best known for her films "Twilight," "Thirteen" and a handful of other films, Hardwicke is a force to be reckoned with in the film industry as she continues her work as a director and an advocate for gender equality among directors in Hollywood.

An honest and emotionally gripping film that depicts all-things beautiful and tragic in life, "Miss You Already" is sure to be added to the arsenal of films on raw, nuanced women with compelling stories and voices.

"Miss You Already" will be released in theaters Friday.
