MGM has released the official trailer for Zach Braff’s latest directorial effort, “A Good Person,” which stars “Midsommar” actor Florence Pugh opposite Celeste O’Connor, Zoe Lister-Jones, Molly Shannon, and Morgan Freeman. The upcoming drama sees Pugh transform into Allison, a traumatized car crash survivor recovering from opioid addiction. Years after the accident, Alison begins to confront her past through an unlikely friendship with her late fiancé’s father.
Braff and Buff previously worked together on Braff’s 2019 short film “In the Time It Takes to Get There,” in which Pugh plays a social media influencer in the 18th century. After their collaboration, the two began a relationship.
“The movie we honestly made together was probably one of my most favorite experiences,” Pugh said he said in the interview. “It felt very natural and easy to do.”
Braff is best known for playing the recurring role of JD on the NBC series Scrubs, which earned him an Emmy nomination in 2005 for Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. Other notable performances include roles in 2013’s Oz the Great and Powerful, and Gail Lerner’s 2022 film adaptation of Cheaper by the Dozen.
As a director, Braff received an Emmy Award nomination in 2021 for directing an episode of “Ted Lasso.” He previously directed the films “Garden State” and “Wish I Was Here,” which he also acted in, as well as the 2017 film “Going in Style.”
Braff produced the film with Pugh, along with Noah Segal, Christine Vachon, Christina Piovesan, and Pamela Coover.
“A Good Person” is set to hit theaters on March 24, 2023. Watch the official trailer below.
