'A lonely and socially awkward woman tries to make a connection with a friendly new co-worker who takes her out on a date.'
It is directed by Rachel Lambert and written by Kevin Armento, Stefanie Abel Horowitz, and Katy Wright-Mead. It is partly based on Armento's play, Killers.
It stars Ridley, Dave Merheje, Parvesh Cheena, and Marcia DeBonis.
Sometimes I Think About Dying premiered at Sundance in January of 2023 to positive reviews, with particular praise sent towards the performance of Ridley as the lead, Fran.
"Departing from corporate comedy, Sometimes I Think About Dying modestly explores critical human connection through a superbly, melancholic Daisy Ridley," wrote one reviewer.
At Sundance, Ridley spoke about her connection with Fran, telling an audience:
"Like, sometimes I feel like a piece of fucking shit. And sometimes I feel, like, great…What was interesting with Fran was sometimes she's sort of obnoxious. Sometimes, she's like, 'I don't want to play your games. I don't want to talk about food. I'm good, I'm apart from this.'
"And other times, she's like, 'How do I become part of this?' So I resonated with that."
It will be theatrically released in January of 2024.
