James Morosini - 2022 - 90m

Starring Patton Oswalt, James Morosini, Claudia Sulewski, Lil Rel Howery, Amy Landecker, Ricky Velez, and Rachel Dratch

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. A thrilling comedy with an unexpected twist!

"Has moments that are downright hysterical, while others that are cringeworthy and disturbing in the best of ways. It is both funny and tenderhearted, and I can honestly say I don’t think I’ve ever seen a film quite like it." - Mark Johnson, Awards Daily

"A touching mix of comedy and drama..." - Jas Keimig, The Stranger

"That [Morosini] pulls this off so successfully is doubtless an indicator of a filmmaker at the cusp of a long career." - Andrea Thompson, A Reel of One's Own

"Unshowy and functional in his directorial approach, Morosini wisely keeps it light." - Wendy Ide, Screen International
