When Doris Miller meets John Fremont sparks fly-at least for Doris. In the cluttered house she shared with her late mother. When Doris begins showing up at John's regular haunts, she wins over his Williamsburg friends. Her new life brings Doris a thrilling perspective, but also creates a rift between her and her longtime friends and family, who believe she's making a fool of herself over a guy half her age.
"A winning comedy-drama built around one of cinema's most endearing leading ladies."--Newsday.
"Field proves more than capable of delivering Showalter-level goofiness while giving the film its heart."--Entertainment Weekly.
"A brave little film that shows it's never too late to come of age."--Los Angeles Times.

Enjoyable movie. Sally Field is perfect as Doris. Very well acted, funny and sad movie about an aging woman who has lived with and taken care of her mother until mother passed away.

VERY GOOD 2015 film with mature Sally Field glowing in her quirky comedy role. Lots of fab costuming, and more...

Very quirky and cautionary tale about lost opportunities.

I like Sally Field, but she must have been desperate to take this role. In the end, I felt I had wasted an hour and a half of my life. It might be appropriate for an old maid who is going through a mid-life crisis.

I really liked this movie. All though it seems super unlikely that a woman of Doris'age may actually believe that a young handsome co-worker may be attracted to her, the supporting story made it believable. Full of quirky characters whom we found to be highly entertaining. I found that the story was told from Doris' perspective which helped us to see her logic and leap of faith make more sense. It was fresh and entertaining. Perhaps better for those who enjoy independent-type films or non-blockbuster 'character' films.

At least I can say that I have watched the movie from beginning to end without pushing the "eject" button. The Desperate Old "Spinster" may be a good fit for the title.

It was sweet and sad- at times uplifting and at times a bit depressing. The acting was great and the story line was very enjoyable.
