As Barry Hertz of The Globe and Mail put it, “Although the likes of Blythe Danner and Lily Tomlin have recently headlined films, it’s rare to find a woman over the age of 50 (or, really, 35) top-lining her own movie – and even more unlikely for that film to center on said woman’s sexual desires. Yet against all odds, here is ‘Hello, My Name Is Doris,’ a sharp dramedy focusing on the romantic stirrings of a lonely office worker, played with considerable wit and verve by the 69-year-old Sally Field.” She’s come a long way since “The Flying Nun.” Don’t miss her.
