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.
