HELLO, MY NAME IS DORIS (2015): The Things I Liked…

Sally field and Max Greenfield are the stars of Hello, My Name Is Doris, the story of a mature woman who romantically pursues a much younger man. This kind of tale certainly isn’t the sort of thing you see in movies everyday, so, naturally I had to meet Doris for myself.

In meeting Doris, I got to learn about her story and how it relates to her current choices. There are a few dramatic and funny moments in this movie. However, what sticks most in my mind are the scenes that were so uncomfortable to watch that averting my gaze just had to happen. By uncomfortable, I’m referring to the situations the characters get themselves into as opposed to the films execution, which, overall is ok.

The actors did well with their performances but I didn’t like Hello, My Name Is Doris enough for the uncomfortable moments to be worth it. What I did like a lot is the following quote because the meaning is just what a chronic procrastinator like myself needs to remember, always.

‘There are seven days in a week and someday isn’t one of them’

I also like that Hello My Name Is Doris helped me to conclude that essentially, we’re all stalkers when we find something /someone we like enough. But of course, as is the case with most things, there are levels and I for one am on the ‘no restraining order necessary’ category.

Happy Film Loving 🙂
