A quiet office worker with thoughts on death begins dating her outgoing new coworker in Sometimes I Think About Dying. Fran (Daisy Ridley) is an office worker in a sleepy coastal town, who keeps to herself while thinking of various ways she can die. Fran becomes acquainted with her new coworker Robert (Dave Merheje), an outgoing cinephile. The two begin dating each other, but Fran's closed-off nature might end up driving them apart.
Sometimes I Think About Dying Synopsis
Sometimes I Think About Dying is a romantic drama directed by Rachel Lambert. The film stars Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Murder on the Orient Express) as Fran, a woman who barely interacts with her office coworkers and frequently thinks of herself in various death scenarios, such as lying in the forest covered with bugs or being attacked by a python in her office. This changes when Robert comes in to replace retiring coworker Carol (Marcia DeBonis). Fran slowly comes out of her shell in her interactions with the twice-divorced Robert, but her reluctance to fully open up might end up driving a wedge between the two.
My Thoughts on Sometimes I Think About Dying
Those who only know Daisy Ridley as Rey from the Star Wars sequel trilogy will definitely see a different side of her in Sometimes I Think About Dying, as she plays a possibly autistic character, who keeps to herself so much, that she barely has a line of dialogue in the entire first act of the film. In fact, it's the contrasting character traits between Fran and Robert that make the film appealing, with their final moment, in particular, being quite heartwarming.
