Inspired by writer, director, and star James Morosini's true life experience, I LOVE MY DAD follows Chuck (Patton Oswalt), a hopelessly estranged father who desperately wants to reconnect with his troubled son, Franklin (Morosini). Blocked on social media and concerned for his son's life, Chuck impersonates a waitress online and starts checking in with Franklin. But things begin to spiral when Franklin falls for this imaginary girl (Claudia Sulewski) and wants nothing more than to meet her in person, as Chuck has inadvertently catfished his own son.
"Very funny. It leans into its high-wire act with the fearlessness of a movie that knows just how fraught it can be to connect with anyone these days." -David Ehrlich, Indiewire
