"Don't Make Me Go"
Directed by actress-turned-filmmaker Hannah Marks, the dramedy Don’t Make Me Go stars John Cho as Max Park, a divorced father diagnosed with a potentially fatal bone tumor. Hesitant to undergo highly risky surgery, Max embarks on a cross-country road trip with the intention of both bonding with his teenage daughter Wally (newcomer Mia Isaac) and introducing her to her mother, who abandoned her soon after her birth. Don’t Make Me Go premieres July 15 on Amazon Prime Video. Actress-turned-filmmaker Hannah Marks previously co-directed the 2018 SXSW Film Festival dramedy After Everything, which focused on the relationship between a young man being treated for cancer and the woman he marries on the spur of the moment, and Mark, Mary & Some Other People, a comedy that examined how ethical non-monogamy impacts the relationship between a recently married couple. Marks is currently working on her fourth film as a director, an adaption of the John Green novel Turtles All the Way Down. Marks also has starred in Southbound, Punk's Dead: SLC Punk 2, Banana Split, Daniel Isn’t Real, Dinner in America, and the director Clay Liford’s Austin-short Slash as well as the TV shows Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency and Necessary Roughness.
