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 (). 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.
