In Brief: The film Our Friend is about love. Cancer is the villain. The heroes are Nicole, Matt and Dane. Matt and Nicole are married. Dane is their best friend. She has cancer. It’s killing her. Dane moves in with them to help them and their children with household duties, her care and his. It’s a beautiful movie based on a true story.

Gary Wolcott has been reviewing movies on radio, television and newspaper since 1990. He believes — and this is an estimate only — that he’s seen something close to 10,000 movies in his lifetime. Gary is a lifelong fan of films and catches a couple of hundred movies a year. He believes movies ought to be seen on the big screen and not on the small screen in your living room or family room. While he loves movies, he also says reviewing film can be a real sacrifice and that he sees many movies so you don’t have to.
He is one of KXL 101.1 FM’s film critics and joined the news staff in 2014. Gary is also the film critic for Tri-Cities, Washington’s Tri-City Herald.
