Reviews are all over the place on this one, thought I'd chime in. Doris is frozen in a time capsule of her mother's making at home, a mere convenience to her family. She is invisible at work, with just one loyal friend. Her style of dress and hair seem to be her only attempt to express herself anymore. Now mom's gone, and Doris' shell is finally cracking open. One moment in an elevator is enough to wake her up to romantic feelings she has long since suppressed. Those of us who are older still feel young inside, but Doris never even experienced those stages in between. So she has a lot of catching up to do, and she awkwardly and adorably tries to find her way. Funny, poignant, and individual, I'll be shocked if Sally Field doesn't receive at least a Golden Globe nomination for this. For those who found it "creepy" that she should be attracted to a younger man, I have to laugh. We see much older men fantasize about, pursue and date younger women all the time! And I hate to break it to you, but older women are still women, not just the grandmotherly roles they often play. Besides, this is really a story of a woman's journey back to herself, the romantic angle is just a part of the journey. Yes, her positive changes were a little too quick to be real (there's no easy fix for hoarding), but I am delighted that Sally took on this role with her usual gusto and presented us with an original character I won't soon forget.
