Allison (Florence Pugh) has it all: a fabulous fiancée, a booming career, and wonderful family and friends. Then fate strikes mercilessly: she gets in a car accident, which kills her two passengers and injures her. She’s discharged from the hospital with unprocessed grief and an addiction to painkillers. When, her life a mess years later, she seeks help for her addiction, Daniel (Morgan Freeman) crosses her path: the father whose daughter was one of the deceased passengers in Allison’ accident. Surprisingly, he shares his own concerns with Allison, and an unlikely bond grows between the two…

‘[The film] benefits from the same shrewd sense of detail and character evident in both [of writer-director Zach Braff’s previous two movies, “Garden State” and “Wish I Was Here”], taking on ambitious themes of addiction, abuse, abandonment, overwhelming grief, and finding a way to forgive the unforgivable, even when it means forgiving yourself. And, as the title suggests, what it means to be a good person…’—Nell Minnow,
