Film - I Love My Dad

Plaion Pictures UK has announced that their new comedy, I Love My Dad, starring Patton Oswalt and James Morosini, will screen at the 66th BFI London Film Festival next week...

Press Release  

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, I Love My Dad also stars Rachel Dratch, Lil Rel Howery, Amy Landecker and Ricky Velez.

James Morosini confirmed the experience, saying "When I was 19 my dad and I got into a huge fight and I decided I was never speaking with him again. I blocked him on my phone, online, everything. Weeks later I got a friend request from a pretty girl on Facebook and I was thrilled. She was perfect. We shared the same interests, she was gorgeous… Things were looking up. Unfortunately, she was also my dad. He had created the account to make sure I was okay. I wrote I LOVE MY DAD to try and understand why he thought this was a good idea... In retrospect, it might be the most loving and fucked up thing anyone’s ever done to me."

I Love My Dad will screen at BFI London Film Festival on 10th October at the Prince Charles Cinema with an additional screening on Tuesday 11th October at the Institute of Contemporary Arts. Find out more and book tickets here.
