Fifty Shades star Dakota Johnson and Crazy Rich Asians' Sonoya Mizuno are set to share the screen in Am I Okay? – a romantic dramedy where they play best friends... and potential lovers.

Part of the line-up for next year's Sundance Film Festival – where it will premiere on January 22 – the film focuses on the lives of Lucy (Johnson) and Jane (Mizuno) as they grapple with big changes.

When Jane announces she is moving to London for a new job, Lucy is unable to keep her secret any longer: she likes women and she has known for quite a while.

This later-in-life realisation is a bit scary for Johnson's character and may drastically change how the two navigate their friendship.

Am I Okay? is directed by The L Word actress Stephanie Allynne and comedian Tig Notaro, from a script by Lauren Pomerantz, best known for being a writer and producer on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The cherry on top of this exciting cinematic cake is the music, the result of teamwork from composer Craig Wedren and Annie Clark (but you might know her as St. Vincent).

Johnson recently starred in Maggie Gyllenhaal's directorial debut The Lost Daughter, alongside The Crown's Olivia Colman and Fargo 4's Jessie Buckley.

Based on Elena Ferrante's novel of the same name, the psychological drama was also written and produced by Gyllenhaal.

First seen in Alex Garland's sci-fi thriller Ex Machina, Mizuno appeared in La La Land and Beauty and the Beast as well as series Maniac and Devs. She will next star as Mysaria in HBO's House of the Dragon, the hotly anticipated prequel to Game of Thrones.
