A Good Person: Production Details
Written and directed by Braff, A Good Person follows Allison (Pugh), a woman whose life falls apart after her involvement in a fatal accident. In the years that follow, Allison develops an unlikely relationship with her would-be father-in-law (Freeman) that helps her inevitably recalibrate a life worth living. O'Connor plays Ryan, a star high-school soccer player who grapples with finding her own way back to normalcy after her world is flipped upside down by the same accident. The film, produced by Killer Films, Elevation Films, Braff, and Pugh, started filming earlier this fall, with MGM handling distributing across North America and certain global markets. In addition to appearing in the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife for Sony, O'Connor made her debut in the 2017 film Wetlands garnering attention in higher-profile roles in Irreplaceable You (2018) for Netflix, Selah and the Spades (2019) for Amazon Prime Video, and Freaky (2019) for Blumhouse. She recently completed filming Arie Posin's The In-Between for Paramount+.
Braff's been busy both acting and directing, starring in the upcoming remake of Cheaper By the Dozen for 20th Century Studios and Moonshot for New Line Cinema. He's also directed episodes of the Amazon series Solos and the AppleTV+ series Ted Lasso. In addition to appearing in the MCU film, Pugh will also appear in the upcoming Disney+ series Hawkeye; New Line's Don't Worry Darling from Olivia Wilde, and Netflix's The Wonder. Freeman also stars in Solos and in the upcoming Lionsgate films Vanquish and Paradise Highway.
