Hello, My Name is Doris – Sally Fields plays Doris, a middle-aged woman who has spent most of her adult life living at home caring for her mother. The company in which she works hires a new art director, John, who is easily half Doris’ age. He is very friendly, and Doris develops a crush on him. The movie is about Doris and how her life changes because of her new obsession. While I don’ t think the script is all that great – it leaves so many holes and questions – the movie is really worth seeing for Sally Fields’ performance. She manages to channel Doris’ supreme quirkiness and makes her funny, charming, endearing and believable character. The acting overall is pretty good, particularly Tyne Daly who plays Doris’ longtime friend. I saw this film with my friend Gladys, and we both thought it was really a lot of fun. Thumbs up from here for a film that feels maybe sometimes a bit too stereotypically “indy-quirky”, and has plot lines that go nowhere, but is saved by a marvelous performance from Fields. I wonder if this is one of the early possible best actress Oscar nominations? I would also put this in the ‘ chick-flick’ category, so ladies, grab your partners for a movie night and check out this one – I think even the husbands will enjoy it!
