Our Friend ★★★½

Nicole is dying of cancer. So why are we watching Dane and Matt's story instead of hers? She is a supporting character in her own story. I enjoyed the movie, even if the narrative angle feels a bit misplaced. Dakota Johnson and Jason Segel gave solid performances. So did the actors who portray the two daughters. Casey Affleck did a good job, too. But his speaking delivery always sounds like he is half awake. At least I could say it is consistent in its delivery.
