Hello, My Name Is Doris

Romance Drama Comedy


 

After her mother dies a woman goes through a late-life-crisis and falls for a much younger man.

The central character is vulnerable and quirky, and thanks to the good grace of the director, she is portrayed with sensitivity. Humour is developed without mocking and we're allowed to feel a genuine empathy with a lonely hoarder who owns a single cat. She also has a vintage wardrobe and retro style that is to die for. All in all, "Hello My Name is Doris" is a well-structured movie that is likely to appeal to discerning audiences who like some complexity from a rom-com. Love, whatshername.
