For an iconic actress with two Oscars, we don’t get to see much of Sally Field these days; aside from those forgettable Amazing Spider-Man movies, her only film appearance since 2006 was her (Oscar-nominated) supporting role in Lincoln. The reason is simple, she tells Yahoo: she only does work “that makes me sit up and go ‘Oh! This I want to do.’ And that doesn’t happen a lot.”
But it happened with Hello, My Name Is Doris, a small-scale comedy/drama from co-writer director Michael Showalter, alum of The State and co-writer of Wet Hot American Summer. She plays an older woman who falls for a much younger co-worker (Max Greenfield); Natasha Lyonne, Kumail Nanjiani, Tyne Daly, Elizabeth Reaser, Stephen Root, and Wendi McLendon-Covey flesh out the ample supporting cast. Here’s the first trailer, courtesy of the aforementioned Yahoo:
Hello, My Name Is Doris was a crowd favorite when it premiered at SXSW last spring, taking the Audience Award in the “Headliners” category; it’ll open in limited release on March 11.
