Dan Levy’s feature film directorial debut may not have you rolling on the floor laughing, but it may help you reach catharsis. In Good Grief, Levy plays Marc, a former painter and children’s book illustrator who lives comfortably in the “larger-than-life” shadow of his husband, Oliver (Luke Evans). But when Oliver unexpectedly dies, Marc is left to pick up the pieces of his life.
Know for his comedic chops, ‘Schitt’s Creek’ star Dan Levy’s directorial film debut ‘Good Grief’ exchanges laughs for tears in first trailer.
Thankfully, he has the support of his friends, Sophie (Ruth Negga) and Thomas (Himesh Patel), and together, the trio embark on a healing trip to Paris, France. There, Marc meets the charming Theo (Arnaud Valois), a man who might be able to show Marc that there is life and love after loss. And although the trio have to face hard truths, for Marc, having Theo around just might ease the pain.
INTO spoke with Valois about how his Good Grief character was cathartic for him and his go-to “pick-me-up” when life gets him down.
