‘Am I OK?’ Trailer: Dakota Johnson Comes Out As Gay In Tig Notaro & Stephanie Allynne’s Friendship Dramedy

We’ve all asked this question about ourselves at one point or another: Am I OK? Well, Dakota Johnson has to come to grips with some hard truths about herself in the new friendship dramedy, in which her character figures out that she’s a lesbian.

Johnson stars as Lucy, a 30s-something woman who discovers she’s a lesbian just as her best friend Jane is moving away from Los Angeles to London for work. Not having her emotional anchor and lifeline is going to make dating in the gay scene a bit tough.

The film stars Sonoya Mizuno as Jane, along with, Jermaine Fowler, Kiersey Clemons, Molly Gordon, Sean Hayes, and Tig Notaro. Notaro co-directed the film with her wife and comedian Stephanie Allynne. The script by Lauren Pomerantz is semi-autobiographical in nature.

This should be an easy rebound for Johnson from the disastrous Madame Web. She’s too good of an actress to be down for too long, and this is more in her wheelhouse than superhero movies ever will be. I saw the film when it premiered two years ago at Sundance and found it a bit slight, but Pomerantz’s deeply personal screenplay holds up.

Here’s the synopsis: Lucy and Jane have been best friends for most of their lives and think they know everything there is to know about each other. But when Jane announces she’s moving to London, Lucy reveals a long-held secret. As Jane tries to help Lucy, their friendship is thrown into chaos.

Am I OK? hits MAX on June 6th.
