Jersey Girl (2004)

Ben Affleck is a widower taking care of his daughter by himself in this 2004 comedic drama from Kevin Smith (Clerks).

Ollie Trinke (Affleck) is a young, suave music publicist who seems to have it all, with a new wife and a baby on the way. But life deals him a bum hand when he's suddenly faced with single fatherhood, a defunct career and having to move in with his father. To bounce back, it takes a new love and the courage instilled in him by his daughter.
