So whilst we have a summer of big budget bombastic blockbusters its worth looking out for the smaller and more intimate films and the arrival of the Don’t Make Me Go trailer fits the bill and looks like a guaranteed tearjerker.
So whilst Don’t Make Me Go is often what our investors hear our from our Editor every time they visit his office (‘You’re fired!’ – Ed) but here the film actually is about single father Max (John Cho) who discovers he has a terminal disease and he decides to try and cram all the years of love and support he will miss with his teenage daughter Wally (Mia Isaac) into the time he has left with her. With the promise of long-awaited driving lessons, he convinces Wally to accompany him on a road trip from California to New Orleans for his 20th college reunion, where he secretly hopes to reunite her with her mother who left them long ago. A wholly original and emotional journey, Don’t Make Me Go explores the unbreakable, eternal bond between a father and daughter from both sides of the generational divide with heart and humour along for the ride.
