Tig Notaro and Dakota Johnson are ‘OK’ with Sundance


We like a high-profile queer project hitting the Sundance Film Festival, and the married directorial team of Tig Notaro and Stephanie Allynne is doing just that later this month with their debut feature, “Am I OK?” Written by Lauren Pomerantz (“SNL,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”), and the film stars Dakota Johnson and Sonoya Mizuno (“Maniac,” “Devs”) as best friends whose relationship faces a series of challenges when one of them decides to move to London just as the other confesses her love. It co-stars June Diane Raphael, queer actors Sean Hayes and Kiersey Clemons, and co-director Notaro in a small role. As for the resolution of the will-they-or-won’t-they trope, we’re going to just assume that lesbian love wins the day. Because it should. Because the world is closer to perfection when it does. It’s 2022 and we want a happy ending.
