(2016) (Sally Field, Max Greenfield) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Dramedy: A self-help seminar convinces a sixty-something woman to pursue her much younger male coworker.
- Doris Miller (SALLY FIELD) has lived with her mother all of her life, the latter years caring for her up until her recent death. Doris' brother, Todd (STEPHEN ROOT), and his wife, Cynthia (WENDI McLENDON-COVEY), think Doris should immediately move out so they can sell the place, especially since both are disgusted by Doris' hoarding that's filled every room with all sorts of stuff.
When not working, Doris spends most of her time with her friends, Roz (TYNE DALY) and Val (CAROLINE AARON), and a self-help seminar she attends convinces her she should act on her attraction to a coworker. The only problem is that John Freemont (MAX GREENFIELD) is decades younger, and it appears Doris has mistaken his general friendliness as a sign that he's romantically attracted to her as well. Roz thinks that's nonsense, but her 13-year-old granddaughter, Vivian (ISABELLA ACRES), helps Doris set up a fake Facebook account so that she can find any common interests between the two and thus strike up conversations that might lead somewhere.
Things take an unexpected turn for Doris, however, when she learns that John has a girlfriend, Brooklyn (BETH BEHRS), who instantly befriends Doris, thus complicating matters. From that point on, and as she continues to deal with her brother and sister-in-law trying to force her to clean up and sell her house, Doris tries to figure out her life and determine if she has any realistic shot of ending up with John.
