Patton Oswalt Catfishes His Son in ‘I Love My Dad’ First Look Teaser
“Do you need to video chat?” “I’m sort of digicam shy…” “What if you happen to had been some outdated man, or one thing?” Super awkward. Just in time for Father’s Day(!), Magnolia has revealed a enjoyable, brief teaser trailer for I Love My Dad, a loopy new comedy from filmmaker / actor James Morosini. This premiered on the 2022 SXSW Film Festival earlier this yr, the place it gained each the Grand Jury Award and Audience Award. Looks precisely like the right SXSW comedy to get viewers to fall out of their chair laughing! Based on an precise true story. After Franklin blocks his father Chuck on social media, Chuck “catfishes” his son by pretending to be a woman named Becca on-line. Chuck then agrees to drive Franklin to Maine to satisfy Becca, understanding that it could be the final straw of their father-son relationship. The movie stars Patton Oswalt, James Morosini, Claudia Sulewski, with Lil Rel Howery and Amy Landecker. There’s not sufficient footage within the teaser, however based mostly on all of the SXSW buzz that is going to be uproariously humorous. I’m nervous and excited to see extra.
Here’s the primary teaser trailer for James Morosini’s I Love My Dad, direct from Magnolia’s YouTube:
Inspired by James Morosini’s true life expertise, I Love My Dad follows Chuck (Oswalt), an estranged father who desperately needs to reconnect together with his troubled son, Franklin (Morosini). Blocked on social media and anxious for his son’s life, Chuck impersonates a waitress on-line and begins checking in with Franklin. Things start to spiral when Franklin falls for this imaginary lady (Sulewski) and desires nothing greater than to satisfy her in particular person, as Chuck has inadvertently catfished his personal son. I Love My Dad is each written and directed by American actor / filmmaker James Morosini, making his second characteristic after directing Threesomething beforehand. This initially premiered on the 2022 SXSW Film Festival earlier this yr, the place it gained the Grand Jury Award & Audience Award. Magnolia Pics will debut Morosini’s I Love My Dad in choose US theaters on August 5th, 2022, then on VOD beginning August 12th this summer time. Funny?
