Sally Field stars in “Hello, My Name Is Doris,” Thursday, April 21, followed by a new “foodie” film (and Sundance Film Festival favorite), “City of Gold,” starting Friday at The Harbor Theatre.
With help from her best friend’s granddaughter, a smitten woman (Sally Field) concocts schemes to get the attention of a younger coworker (Max Greenfield) in her office in “Hello, My Name Is Doris.” Directed by Michael Showalter, co-starring Beth Behrs, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Stephen Root, Elizabeth Reaser, Natasha Lyonne, and Tyne Daly.
“Hello, My Name Is Doris” is rated R. It plays at 7 p.m., Thursday, April 21.
In “City of Gold,” Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold shows us a Los Angeles where ethnic cooking is a kaleidoscopic portal to the mysteries of an unwieldy city and the soul of America. Combing through colorful neighborhoods in his green pickup truck, Gold is sniffing out his next strip-mall discovery – whether Oaxaca grasshopper soup, hand-cut tonkotsu ramen, or a particularly unctuous pad see ew. As piping-hot platters are served up, so are stories of immigrants whose secret family recipes are like sacred offerings pledged for the opportunity to build their American Dream. With eternal curiosity, razor-sharp intellect, and existential longing, Gold is a culinary geographer taking us where no critic has gone before in this richly penetrating documentary odyssey.
“City of Gold” is rated R (for some language). It plays at 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday, April 22 and 23, and Wednesday and Thursday, April 27 and 28; and at 2 p.m., Sunday, April 24.
