Maybe you can’t relate to an older lady who falls in love with a younger dude at work scenario but I’m pretty sure we can all relate to the painful awkwardness of falling in love with someone who is seemingly out of your league for one superficial reason or another…so if you can relate with that, you’ll love Hello My Name Is Doris. Some of us relate with it a little too well :/
You get Sally Field (Americana movie perfection for basically the last 50 years), Max Greenfield (New Girl charmer extraordinaire) and surprise! Jack Antonoff, who you might know as the former Fun guitarist? Bleachers frontman? Perhaps Taylor Swift’s 1989 writing ace? Or Lena Dunham’s boyfriend? That’s okay too. He has a bit part as a the frontman of a band called Goya Baby and the Nuclear Winter. You’ll recognize some other actors too but I don’t feel like looking up all their names.
Your mom is right! This movie is hopelessly precious and I’m embarrassingly behind.
Consequence Of Sound has a far more eloquent synopsis and here is the proper trailer. Let me know what you think.
