HELICOPTER MOM is a coming-of-age comedy film directed by Salomé Breziner which premiered at the 2014 Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF). It stars Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), Jason Dolley, Mark Boone Junior, and Skyler Samuels.
Maggie Cooper (Vardalos) is a loving but overbearing mom, who hovers over her teenaged son, Lloyd (Dolley). She thinks Lloyd may be gay, so she supports him by setting up dates with boys, and submitting an application for a gay student college scholarship. But Lloyd is not so sure, and his mom’s meddling is making things worse.
