Three sentence movie reviews: Hello My Name is Doris

This movie is worth watching just for Doris’ outfits, which are varied and layered and incredibly fun.*  Overall, I was charmed by this tale of a woman getting out of her decades-old rut, and the movie was calibrated to have all the feelings.  I did wonder if perhaps it would have been a different movie if this woman’s story had been told via a woman writer or director, but the movie making establishment is what it is.

Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home

  1. This movie was one of my top films that I watched in 2016! I thought it was very cute and charming. I loved Sally Field in it. Also, there’s something about Max Greenfield that’s so compelling.

    1. I thought what I saw about the movie (ads/previews?) painted a picture that was not entirely accurate about the movie. Which was good, as the actual movie was better than what I was told about this movie. You will adore the outfits.
