Morgan Freeman and Florence Pugh form an unlikely friendship in A Good Person.
Sky Cinema released the first trailer to the drama which also stars Celeste O’Conner, Chinaza Uche, Zoe Lister-Jones, and Molly Shannon.
A Good Person will be released in UK cinemas March 2023, ahead of a release on Sky Cinema in April 2023.
Written and directed by Zach Braff, A Good Person centers on Allison (Pugh), whose life falls apart after she survives a car accident that kills her future sister-in-law. While in recovery for opioid addiction, she forms a friendship with her would-be father-in-law Daniel (Morgan Freeman). As their relationship grows it helps her inevitably live a life worth living.
O’Connor plays Ryan, a star high-school soccer player who grapples with finding her own way back to normalcy after her world is flipped upside down by the same accident.
Uche will play Nathan, who has contended with much childhood abuse in the past and faces a tragic loss in the present, trying to move on to create a new life for himself in Manhattan.
Lister-Jones will play Simone in the movie, a hardened veteran of AA, but an earthy, good soul. She’s seen everything and overcome addiction and depression herself. She’s a tough gal, street-smart, tattooed, loving but doesn’t take crap from anyone. She has a partner and a two-year-old baby.
Braff and Pugh are producing the film with Killer Films and Elevation Films. MGM acquired it for distribution in North American and international markets including Latin America, Scandinavia, Russia, Eastern Europe, China, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, India, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam, among other markets.
