Sally Field Stars in Trailer for Showalter's 'Hello, My Name Is Doris'
"Do you guys know Doris? She's kinda weird." The trailer has debuted for a quirky, cute, charming indie drama called Hello, My Name Is Doris starring Sally Field. After a quiet few years in her career, Field has roared back recently playing Aunt May in The Amazing Spider-Man, not to mention Mary Todd Lincoln in Lincoln. She's back in a leading role again here, as Doris, an older woman pining for the young new guy at her work - played by Max Greenfield, from "New Girl". The entire cast includes Natasha Lyonne, Kumail Nanjiani, Peter Gallagher, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Tyne Daly and Beth Behrs. This is adapted from a short film by Laura Terruso and looks occasionally funny, but not really my kind of character study. Take a look.
When Doris Miller (Sally Field) meets John Fremont (Max Greenfield), her company’s hip new art director, sparks fly—at least for Doris. Her first encounter with true romance (outside of the pages of a novel) convinces Doris that she and the mostly unaware John are meant for each other. In the cluttered house she shared with her late mother, Doris mines the Internet for information on her one-and-only, guided by the 13-year-old granddaughter of her best pal Roz (Tyne Daly). Hello, My Name Is Doris is the second feature from actor-writer-producer-filmmaker Michael Showalter, after making The Baxter in 2005. The screenplay is by Showalter and Laura Terruso. This film premiered at the SXSW Film Festival. Showalter's Hello, My Name is Doris will open in select theaters starting March 11th next year. Interested?

Saw this at SXSW and it was a lot of fun, some poignant moments, and Sally Field fully inhabits the Doris character. It was quite well-received. Not sure why it has taken a year to get a release.

Looks good enough...maybe not a stunner, but decent enough to put on while doing busy work.

Sally Field might be one of the rare female actors who could be match to Meryl Streep... She made some memorable movies ... And she kinda looks cute here. No matter how old she is ...
