What Is ‘IF’ About?

From writer and director John KrasinskiIF is about a girl who discovers that she can see everyone’s imaginary friends. Along with Ryan, she embarks on a magical journey to reconnect forgotten “IFs” with their kids. Ryan and John are both producers on the film, and each have roles in the movie.

I figured I needed to make a movie for my kids. Seeing as though Quiet Place is like PG-40 in our house — they won’t see Quiet Place till they’re 40 — I figured I should make one for them,” John told EW about his previous horror film. “I was so enamored by the world that my kids were going to by themselves. They were off on their own and clearly deep in imagination, whether it was a game, whether it was painting, whether it was doing art, all this stuff. They went into this locked-in place that I wish I could have visited.”

He continued, “I just told [them], ‘I have this weird idea that we should do something where imaginary friends are not just adorable creatures. They’re these time capsules for everyone’s hopes, dreams, ambitions, and this place that we can always go back to that we all think that as adults we leave behind, but we didn’t. They’re right there. We just have to turn around and look at them again.'”
