Netflix viewers left sobbing over new drama

The drama has just been released

There's a brand-new film that's just been released on Netflix to help you out with those January Blues... though we must warn you, it's a bit of a tear-jerker.

The drama-romance Good Grief marks Schitt's Creek star Dan Levy’s debut as a feature-film writer and director, and it's clear fans couldn't wait to sink their teeth into it.

The Netflix premise reads: "An artist grieving the loss of his famous writer husband takes his two best friends on a trip to Paris, where they unpack messy secrets and hard truths." Check out the official trailer here:

The plot follows the character of Marc (Levy) who was content living in the shadow of his larger-than-life husband, Oliver (Luke Evans).

However, when Oliver unexpectedly dies Marc’s world shatters, sending him and his two best friends, Sophie (Ruth Negga) and Thomas (Himesh Patel), on a soul-searching trip to Paris that reveals some hard truths they each needed to face.

Levy opened up about his inspiration for the film, telling Tudum the idea came to him after his grandmother sadly passed away.

"The question became: What does it all mean and is there a correct way to grieve someone? I needed to do this. I needed to crack the seal on a screenplay, and this felt so personal to me."

Good Grief marks Dan Levy’s debut as a feature-film writer and director.

He continued: "Good Grief is a cautionary tale about friendship and loss and all the mess that comes with it when the truth is something you’ve evaded for most of your life.

"It’s funny, it’s bittersweet, it’s a project that’s helped me work through my own grief. And I hope it does the same for other people as well."

While 'grief' is quite literally in the title, Levy reassures viewers the film isn't all doom and gloom.

"There’s such joy in this movie, it has much more to do with life than death which is why the movie starts with a death but doesn’t end with one," Levy said.

"It acts as a catalyst for someone to question who they are and how they got to where they were. And it also acts as a springboard for us to tell a really lovely story about friendship front and centre. That is the romance in this film."

Good Grief is currently available to stream on Netflix.

Fans clearly couldn't wait to watch the latest flick to hit the streaming platform with many subsequently rushing to social media to share their thoughts.

One X, formerly Twitter, penned: "Good Grief is a sweet, earnest directorial debut from Dan Levy."

A second chimed in: "Just started Good Grief that just came out on Netflix and omg this movie is sad as f*ck."

"Dan Levy we’ll get you that Oscar baby," praised a final viewer.

Good Grief is currently available to stream on Netflix.
