Guys, Netflix has done a thing.
It’s made a movie with the sole purpose of making us cry.
It’s like the streaming service went to their little movie making machine and typed in ‘A Fault In Our Stars‘, ‘Diversity’ and ‘Christopher Walken’ and this is what popped out.
The film in question is called Irreplaceable You and yes, as the title suggests, it’s a romantic drama that doesn’t have a happy ending… not even for Christopher Walken.
The movie follows Abbie and Sam, best friends from childhood who are engaged to be married.
LISTEN: The period drama Mudbound has been a surprise success for Netflix with a tonne of Oscar nominations. Here’s why it’s one to watch. Post continues after audio…
Abbie and Sam have never spent a day apart and they’re planning to spend the rest of their lives together… but then Abbie discovers she has terminal cancer.
After hearing her diagnosis Abbie decides to find a replacement wife for her fiance.
This, of course, is a terrible idea and it never actually happens. Sam doesn’t want a new wife and Abbie realises after interviewing a bunch of possible replacements that she doesn’t actually want to go through with it.
