The film, which premiered at Sundance in 2022, is directed by Tig Notaro and Stephanie Allynne.

We've been waiting for over two years for the lesbian film Am I OK? to be released, and now, our patience is finally paying off!

Am I OK? stars Dakota Johnson as Lucy, a 32-year-old without too much direction in life whose world is shaken when she realizes she's a lesbian at the same time her lifelong best friend Jane (Sonoya Mizuno) announces she's moving to London for a work opportunity.

Now we know that it will debut on Max on June 6!

According to EW, the film is "equally about Lucy's journey entering the queer dating pool for the first time while feeling practically ancient in terms of coming out, as it is an exploration of Lucy and Jane's platonic friendship, which is thrown into chaos by the changes in the women's lives."

The trailer will be deeply relatable for anyone who came out as an adult, featuring scenes where Lucy literally falls off a bed in order to avoid kissing a man, googles an "am I a lesbian?" quiz, awkwardly rejects a girl who wants to dance with her, saying "I am.. I have a drink, I'm drinking it. So…" and cries a lot (and we mean a lot).

"You try 20 different flavors of ice cream before you settle on a single scoop," Jane tells her, "Ice cream is different than vagina," Lucy replies. "How do you know? You don't know!" her friend says.

"Yeah I do know, otherwise it would be called vag-ice cream," Lucy laughs awkwardly and alone before stopping and asking the film's title question: "Am I OK?"

Am I OK? first premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival, and we've been dying to see it ever since it was first announced to be screening there! Now, we'll finally get the chance.

It was bought by Warner Bros and HBO Max directly after that festival, and so we've had to wait over two years to get this release date, but we know it's going to be worth it!

The film comes from writer Lauren Pomerantz, who based the story on her own late-in-life coming out and relationship with her best friend.

It was directed by wife directing team Tig Notaro and Stephanie Allynne, and also stars Kiersy Clemons, Molly Gordon, Jermaine Fowler, and Sean Hayes.
