Irreplaceable You features some of the most promising rising stars, along with a few veteran favorites. Directed by Stephanie Laing, (better known as the Executive producer of HBO’s Veep and Vice Principals) Irreplaceable You tells the romantic story of Abbie (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) and Sam (Michiel Huisman), childhood best friends who ended up engaged to be married while living a peaceful life in New York. But everything comes down when Abbie receives an unexpected diagnosis. Faced with the prospect of an uncertain timeline, Abbie begins a touching and at times humorous journey for a new woman, a new companion to take care of Sam. Along the way, Abbie makes unlikely friendships with an older gentleman, Myron (Christopher Walken), Kate (Kate McKinnon) and Mitch (Steve Coogan) all of them having one single thing in common which is the desire of continuing to live life.
Irreplaceable You (Netflix movie) asks the question, how do you say goodbye when all you want to do is to live?
