‘Good Grief’ Trailer: Dan Levy’s Directorial Debut Tackles Love, Loss, And Picking Up The Pieces

Dan Levy is moving from Schitt’s Creek to the director’s chair. The actor’s feature directorial debut, Good Grief, finds him exploring themes of loss and friendship following the death of a significant other. It’s a definite change of pace for Levy, but based on the new trailer he seems to be handling it in stride.

Not only does Levy direct, but he wrote and stars in the film as Marc, a London man settled in his life with his husband, Oliver, a grandiose figure played by Luke Evans. When Oliver suddenly dies, Marc must find a way to pick up the pieces and carry on. To do it, he’ll need the help of his best friends, played by Ruth Negga and Himesh Patel, who take him on a Paris getaway.

Also in the cast are Celia Imrie, David Bradley, Arnaud Valois, Emma Corrin, and Kaitlyn Dever, so it’s quite a line-up that Levy has put together.

Good Grief is set to open in theaters on December 29th, before hitting Netflix on January 5th 2024.
