As a young New York couple goes from college romance to marriage and the birth of their first child, the unexpected twists of their journey create reverberations that echo over continents and through lifetimes.

FilmNation Entertainment acquired the rights to the script in August 2016, and shortly after, Oscar Isaac was cast in one of the leading roles. The remainder of the principal cast rounded into shape in 2017, and production commenced in March of that year. Amazon Studios won a heated bidding war for the project, beating out distributors such as Universal and Paramount. Writer/director Dan Fogelman is the creator of the hit TV drama This is Us.

Life Itself will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.
