THE MEDDLER is a comedy-drama film directed and written by Lorene Scafaria (Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World), starring Susan Sarandon, Rose Byrne and J.K. Simmons. It was screened in the Special Presentations section of the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.
With a new iPhone, an apartment near the Grove, and a comfortable bank account left to her by her beloved late husband, Marnie Minervini (Sarandon) has happily relocated from New Jersey to Los Angeles to be near her daughter Lori (Byrne), a successful (but still single) screenwriter, and smother her with motherly love. But when the dozens of texts, unexpected visits, and conversations dominated by unsolicited advice force Lori to draw strict personal boundaries, Marnie finds ways to channel her eternal optimism and forceful generosity to change the lives of others—as well as her own—and find a new purpose in life.
