Full film details

Marnie Minervini (Susan Sarandon) has always been good at one thing – taking care of people.

When her husband dies, she decides to fill the sudden gap in her life by moving from New Jersey to Los Angeles, where she can focus all of her energy on taking care of someone else; her daughter, Lori (Rose Byrne).

A successful screenwriter who is content with her independence, Lori quickly begins to feel smothered by her mother’s constant phone calls, texts and surprise bagel deliveries. She tries to break free from Marnie’s well-intentioned attention, and a business trip to New York seems like the perfect opportunity to get some much needed space.

But you never know what might happen when you leave a meddler alone with time on their hands!

Marnie redirects her attention from Lori towards everyone else she thinks she might be able to help, from Lori’s friends to the random salesman who sells her a new mobile phone.

However, as she works her magic and tries to fix everyone else’s problems, she realises there’s one person who needs taking care of the most – herself.

This critically acclaimed comedy, directed by Lorene Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World), gives a refreshing and authentic perspective on family dynamics. It stars Sarandon (Thelma & Louise) alongside Byrne (Bad Neighbours 2) and J.K Simmons (Whiplash).
