About the Movie

With a new iPhone, an apartment near The Grove, and a comfortable bank account left to her by her beloved late husband, Marnie Minervini (Academy Award® Winner Susan Sarandon, Best Actress, Dead Man Walking, 1995) has happily relocated from New Jersey to Los Angeles to be near her daughter Lori, a successful (but still single) screenwriter, and smother her with motherly love. But when the dozens of texts, unexpected visits, and conversations dominated by unsolicited advice force Lori to draw strict personal boundaries, Marnie finds ways to channel her eternal optimism and forceful generosity to change the lives of others. While making new friends, she finds a new purpose in life and launches into an unexpected romance with a motorcycle-riding ex-cop named Zipper (Academy Award® Winner J.K. Simmons, Best Supporting Actor, Whiplash, 2014).

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Susan Sarandon is great at being good in writer-director Lorene Scafaria's loving homage to her mother's uncommonly generous personality. – Peter Debruge, Variety, Sep 14, 2015

Fresh: Sarandon's exuberant performance is delivered with care and conviction. – David Ehrlich, Time Out, Sep 23, 2015

Fresh: The Meddler might be a bit too simplistic at times and some of the comedic choices are annoyingly broad, but it's a breezy, amiable watch. – Guardian, Sep 15, 2015

The Best Comedy of 2016!

The Meddler is a hilariously charming indie film with a fantastic performance from Susan Sarandon. The story is an absolute delight & it has great themes of having to get over lost loved ones. It's definitely the most heartfelt film I've seen in a while.

Truly Awful.

I love all the actors in this film, but the material was cloying, clichéd and predictable. This film had far fewer insights than one might glean from watching paint dry.

Great movie

I'd watch this one over again. Loved the characters and it reminded me of my mom.
