Watch: Sally Field Proves Growing Up (And Making Out) is Timeless in 'Hello, My Name is Doris' Trailer

Who said you can’t come of age in your 60s? Fresh off the premiere of the Netflix original “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day at Camp,” Michael Showalter’s latest film is “My Name is Doris,” a Sally Field-starring “late-in-life coming-of-age story” about Doris Miller, a shy and generally overlooked woman of a certain age who falls for a new hire at her company, John Freemont (Max Greenfield).

After attending a self-help seminar that encourages her to follow her dreams, Doris decides to pursue John, attending concerts and Facebook-stalking him like any good millennial would. Quickly accepted by his hipster friends with her vintage wardrobe and unironic love for their rooftop knitting circle, Doris begins to learn as much about herself as she does about her newfound paramour. A raunchy but heartfelt take on the traditional coming of age story, “Hello, My Name is Doris” looks to be a fun and genuine spin on the well-worn genre. 

The film was co-written by Showalter and Laura Terusso. The film also stars Natasha Lyonne, Kumail Nanjiani and Beth Behrs. Watch the clip above courtesy of Yahoo! Movies
