SXSW 2015 Interview: Michael Showalter Talks Hello, My Name Is Doris

18 March 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Anyone familiar with Michael Showalter's work - be it his groundbreaking comedy troupes, The State and Stella, or his widely cherished cult films which he co-wrote with David Wain - is well aware that Showalter is a comedic mastermind; a true original in an era where the word original is growing harder to use. But what fans of Showalter's penchant for hyper irony are perhaps less aware of, is his soulful flair for heartfelt, comedic storytelling, as evidenced by his two directorial credits.His first film came in 2005 with the Tribeca hit, The Baxter, in which, Showalter himself plays an out of step romantic, too pure for the modern dating world. Now 10 years later, Showalter returns to the big screen with Hello, My Name...

Meet the 2015 SXSW Filmmakers #20: Michael Showalter Lets Sally Field Shine in 'Hello, My Name is Doris'

17 March 2015 6:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Sally Field on Going Raunchy for 'Hello, My Name is Doris' and Why She's Never Felt Like a Great Success Directed by "Wet Hot American Summer" alumni Michael Showalter, "Hello, My Name Is Doris" puts Sally Field right where she belongs: Front, center and in the spotlight. Showalter's second feature film (his first was "The Baxter") follows Doris (Field) through a misguided attempt for the heart of her much-younger colleague. Her real-retro know-how gets her in with his hipster crowd, but as with the coming-of-age stories that inspired the film, Doris must discover what's truly right for herself -- regardless of what the popular kids think. What's your film about in 140 characters or less?After the death of her elderly mother, a reclusive and eccentric woman named Doris becomes romantically infatuated with a younger co-worker. Antics ensue. Now what's it Really about?It's about many things really. It's about finding your true family. »

SXSW 2015 to Open With Russell Brand Documentary, Premieres Include Ex Machina and A Brave Heart

The first wave of titles screening at the 2015 South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival were announced today, and the batch has us very excited indeed. First of all, the event will open with the latest documentary from Ondi Timoner, who directed the masterpieces Dig! and We Live in Public. This one is called Brand: A Second Coming, and it’s about comedian Russell Brand‘s rebirth as a “self-proclaimed revolutionary” following a bout with addiction and his rise to fame. Even if you don’t care for her subject, Timoner is the kind of filmmaker who can keep you intrigued anyway. Her past few films have also dealt with big, fascinating egos, from hot shit rocker Anton Newcombe to exhibitionist Internet pioneer Josh Harris to “skeptical environmentalist” Bjorn Lomborg. Timoner returns to SXSW following last year’s debut of her short Obey the Artist, on Shepard Fairey. Among the fiction selections is one of our most anticipated »
