"Hello, My Name is Doris" stars Sally Field, Max Greenfield, Beth Behrs, and Wendi McLendon-Covey. Released on March 11, 2016, the film is about a woman in her 60s who has a romantic relationship with a younger co-worker.
The film is directed by Michael Showalter, who is one of the members of the sketch comedy trio Stella from the MTV show The State. I'm not very familiar with this film, to be honest. I haven't seen any trailers or advertisements or anything for this film, so clearly, this is me reviewing it without any knowledge of the film to begin with, except the fact that it has Sally Field in it. I'm pretty sure that will save you plenty of time to read what I thought of it and then do something else for the rest of the day.
Solid performances from the cast, including Sally Field as Doris.
The screenplay and direction were pretty good.
The story has its charm despite the concept being a bit weird and predictable.
A couple of slow parts.
As I said before, the story is a bit predictable at times.
Final Thoughts: Sally Field's performance and its somewhat charming story makes "Hello, My Name is Doris" a decent recommendation to those who are into romantic indie films. I apologize if I didn't have anything else to say about this film, but like I said, I knew nothing about this film until I saw that it was playing in my theater. All I can say is that it's a nice little indie treat and that it's worth watching if it's playing at a theater near you.
