Dating My Mother
New York Premiere
Dir: Mike Roma, USA, 2016, 81 mins
Freshly out of college with a liberal arts degree and without employment and romance, Danny Patrick Reilly) spends his days in suburban New Jersey aimlessly browsing dating apps or knocking back red wine. His mother, Joan (Kathryn Erbe, Law & Order: Criminal Intent), is also looking to strike up romance for the first time since Danny’s father passed away. Drawing insightful and hilarious parallels between the two generations’ dating routines and varying levels of confidence, this sweet and spiky comedy also features delightful supporting turns by G.B.F.’s Paul Iacono and the always reliably funny Kathy Najimy.
