Magnolia Pictures released the full official trailer for I Love My Dad, the award winning indie comedy movie starring Patton Oswalt, Claudia Sulewski and James Morosini, who also directs the film.
The film premiered at South by Southwest where it won both the Jury and Audience Awards in the Narrative Feature Competition; and will open in theaters on August 5, 2022 followed by on demand on August 12, 2022.
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.
