The Meddler Review
Marnie Minervini (Susan Sarandon), a sixty-something mom who moves from New York to Los Angeles to be closer to her screenwriter daughter Lori (Rose Byrne), who just broke up with her actor boyfriend (Jason Ritter).
Marnie is one of those mothers who calls her daughter five times in the space of a couple of hours, leaving a message each time Lori doesn’t pick up, then leaves ten more messages throughout the day because she’s worried about not having heard back from her yet. Her daughter can’t take her relentlessness, so Marnie channels her energy into mothering strangers and near-strangers. She encourages a helpful Apple store clerk named Freddy (Jerrod Carmichael) to go to college and even gives him rides to and from school. When she finds out that a young lesbian mom named Jillian (Cecily Strong) can’t afford her fantasy wedding, she offers to foot the bill herself. Read the movie reviews below.
The Meddler is holding up that softening filter through which each of us sees the funny, maddening, indispensable people with whom we laugh, mourn and, if we’re lucky, find love. --Manohla Dargis, The NYTimes
Cheers to Scafaria, who admirably refuses to tie things up with pretty bows. She lets the pain seep in. -- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
Susan Sarandon pours on the New Yawk accent in “The Meddler,” an ingratiating semi-autobiographical comedy by Lorene Scafaria. -- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
Susan Sarandon plays Rose Byrne's mother in "The Meddler" and, well, the title pretty much tells a moviegoer all they need to know. --Stephen Whitty, New York Daily News
