Dakota Johnson is figuring out what she wants from her dating life after admitting she’s interested in women in the first trailer for Am I OK?

Max announced Monday that the dramedy feature from co-directors Tig Notaro and Stephanie Allynne is set to launch on the streaming service June 6 after premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in 2022. Sonoya Mizuno, Jermaine Fowler, Kiersey Clemons, Molly Gordon, June Diane Raphael and Notaro round out the cast.

Am I OK? centers on lifelong friends Lucy (Johnson) and Jane (Mizuno) navigating the changes in their paths after Jane plans a move to London, leading Lucy to reveal a secret about herself.

While encouraging Johnson to come out of her shell, Mizuno says in the trailer, “You try 20 different flavors of ice cream before you settle on a single scoop.” This leads Johnson to respond, “Ice cream is different than vagina.”

Notaro and Allynne, who are married in real life, make their feature directorial debut from a script by Lauren Pomerantz. Producers include Johnson, Notaro, Allynne, Pomerantz, Jessica Elbaum, Will Ferrell, Erik Feig, Lucy Kitada and Ro Donnelly.

In her review for The Hollywood Reporter, critic Angie Han wrote, “If Am I OK?‘s tone occasionally tilts too far toward comedy (including in an oddly staged climactic confrontation), its laughs land far more often than not, and bring us closer to the characters by inviting us to laugh with them.”

During an interview with THR at the time of Am I OK?’s Sundance premiere, Notaro and Allyne emphasized the importance of the pair working on the film together. Notaro said at the time, “There’s no world where I would’ve gone into a feature without Stephanie.”
