2022 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Tig Notaro & Stephanie Allynne’s Am I Ok?

2022 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Tig Notaro & Stephanie Allynne’s Am I Ok?

Perhaps a great option for the festival in terms of laugher fare, Tig Notaro and Stephanie Allynne team together for what is not their first creative collab, but their directorial debut. Former SNL and current The Ellen DeGeneres Show writer Lauren Pomerantz penned Am I Ok? — which is being coined as a heartwarming comedy. Production began in February of 2021 back in Los Angeles with Dakota Johnson leading a cast comprised of Jermaine Fowler, Whitmer Thomas, Molly Gordon, June Diane Raphael, Sean Hayes and Notaro herself. Notaro was of course a big deal in Park City back in 2015 when she was the subject of the docu tribute Tig.

Gist: This follows lifelong best friends Lucy and Jane, who are convinced they know everything there is to know about each other. When Jane announces she’s moving from L.A. to London for a job, Lucy reveals a deeply buried, long-held secret. As Jane tries to help Lucy sort through old patterns and new feelings, their bond is thrown into chaos.

Production Co./Producers: Gloria Sanchez Productions’ Jessica Elbaum and Will Ferrell, TeaTime Pictures’ Dakota Johnson and Ro Donnelly, Something Fierce’s Tig Notaro and Stephanie Allynne, Picturestart’s Erik Feig and Lucy Kitada.

Prediction: PREMIERES.

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available. (Domestic, international).
