Living with breast cancer through the prism of the lifelong friendship of Jess (Barrymore) and Milly (Collette).

★★★★★

Written, directed and toplined by women — how often can you say that? — Miss You Already is a valiant if flawed attempt to make a candid film about living with breast cancer through the prism of the lifelong friendship of Jess (Barrymore) and Milly (Collette).

Juxtaposing Milly’s deterioration with Jess’ pregnancy, it has good moments (a wig fitting with Frances de la Tour is a hoot), and it doesn’t leave its male characters (Considine, Cooper) completely hanging, but the central friendship fails to convince. It’s a sad, emotive, important subject but it deserves a more detailed, heartfelt film than this.
