Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Mar 20th at 6:40p for Hello, My Name is Doris at the Kendall Square Cinema. Look for Sean wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Hello, My Name Is Doris is a witty and compassionate late-life coming-of-age-story. When Doris (Academy Award-winner Sally Field, Norma Rae, Places in the Heart) meets her companys hip new art director John (Max Greenfield), sparks flyat 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). When Doris begins showing up at Johns regular haunts, she wins over his Williamsburg friends with her eclectic vintage wardrobe, quirky naivete and unironic enthusiasm for their rooftop knitting circle. Her new life brings Doris a thrilling perspective, but also creates a rift between her and her longtime friends and family, who believe shes making a fool of herself over a guy half her age.
