Inspired by Writer/Director/Star James Morosini’s true life experience, I Love My Dad follows Chuck (Patton Oswalt), an estranged father who desperately wants to reconnect with his depressive son, Franklin (Morosini). Blocked on social media and concerned for his son’s life, Chuck impersonates a waitress (Claudia Sulewski) online and starts checking in with Franklin. But things begin to spiral when Franklin falls for this imaginary girl and wants nothing more than to meet her in person, as Chuck has inadvertently catfished his own son. Winner of both the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at SXSW, and with a cast supported by the likes of Rachel Dratch and Lil Rel Howery, I Love My Dad is a heartfelt comedy that leans into its high-wire act with fearlessness.
