Patton Oswalt’s father/son catfishing comedy I Love My Dad gets a trailer

We called I Love My Dad a “gloriously awkward and uncomfortable 95 minutes” that was “hilarious cringe to the max anchored by genuinely terrific performances” in our ★★★★ review (which you can read here), and ahead of it’s debut at this years BFI London Film Festival a trailer for James Morosini’s true-life catfishing comedy has just been released.

Starring alongside writer/director Morosini are Patton Oswalt (Young Adult), Lil Rel Howery (Get Out), Amy Landecker (Your Honor), Claudia Sulewski (Deadcon), and Rachel Dratch (Harley Quinn). Check out the trailer below…

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.

I Love My Dad will screen at BFI London Film Festival on October 10th and October 11th.
