What is the 12 minute movie?
If Anything Happens I Love You is an animated film about two grieving parents as they struggle after losing their daughter in a school shooting. The film has been produced by Gilbert Films and Oh Good Productions.
Initially it was released during a private screening at the United Talent Agency in Beverly Hills on March 4, 2020, and arrived on Netflix only recently. The film is currently on #4 spot on Netflix.
Giving it the title of the ‘saddest movie’ on Netflix, many fans gave reviews and explained how they felt after the movie. The animated film has a ridiculously short runtime of 12 minutes & the tale takes place in the aftermath of a school shooting, which makes it heartbreakingly relevant in this day and age.

McCormack and Govier also served as executive producers alongside Sydney Holland (Amnesiac), Robyn Klein (Rescue Dawn), Jayme Lemons (Enlightened), Peter Morgan from American Sniper, Jeremy Ross (Slinky), and actor Laura Dern from Big Little Lies.
