Dir: Dolly Wells
Starring: Grace Van Patten, Emily Mortimer, Nat Wolff
Dolly Wells (Doll & em) directorial debut is a charming and observant comedy. With her widower father currently living it up in Paris with a young, new girlfriend, Lilian (Grace Van Patten) has been placed into the care of family friends over in Brooklyn, New York. Under the roof of famed author, Julia Price (Emily Mortimer), Lilian has no real motivation to live any other lifestyle than that of her hermit housemate. To impress her ex-boyfriend, and the other cynics around her, Lilian suddenly decides to make a documentary on Julia – albeit, an unauthorized one – with the help of some new people in her life.
