This article will discuss the Amazon Prime film Don’t Make Me Go, including the release date, premise, cast and trailer.

Are you ready to weep? If the premise is to go by, Don’t Make Me Go will pull at the heartstrings and make many viewers regret pressing play. But that’s only a prediction. The Amazon film, directed by Hannah Marks, has been given a July release, and we genuinely look forward to seeing how audiences and critics react to it.

Amazon film Don’t Make Me Go premise

When single father Max (John Cho) discovers he has a terminal disease, 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 humor along for the ride.

Our opinion on the premise:

Damn… it’s pretty apparent what the film is angling for here. By the end of this film, it will want you to question your life choices. Your soaked face will be wondering what to do with yourself next. Jokes aside, it looks like a well-sewn emotional premise, but we hope the performance matches the plot.

Our opinion on the trailer:

This looks like a rather good father-daughter story judging by the trailer. It will be heartwarming and sad, but also full of comedy. I noticed the on-screen chemistry between John Cho and Mia Isaac. It looks like they’ve made a concerted effort to make the script work. There’s a lot to be excited about here!
