Hello, My Name is Doris

Comedy-drama, an Audience Award winner at SXSW, with screen legend Sally Field playing 60-year-old spinster Doris who develops a romantic fixation on a much younger co-worker (New Girl's Max Greenfield). Writer-director Michael Showalter is the writer behind TV's Wet Hot American Summer and rom-com send-up They Came Together.

"After the death of her mother, Doris becomes motivated by a self-help seminar to romantically pursue a younger coworker at a hip Brooklyn clothing company. As she finds ways to connect with John (going to an electronica concert, hanging out in hipster coffee shops), her authentic retro style thrusts her into the spotlight of the local hipster social scene and she soon gets caught up in the world of chocolate bar haikus and rooftop knitting clubs. But her other relationships suffer as a result of her new found popularity and Doris has to realise that what she wants isn't necessarily what she needs." (SXSW)

But they come in cruel versions too, especially the ones that depict forbidden love across age or cultural barriers. The film Hello, My Name is Doris (2015) is...
