First Official Trailer for Louis C.K.’s TIFF Dark Comedy I LOVE YOU, DADDY with Chloë Grace Moretz & John Malkovich

I LOVE YOU, DADDY is a comedy-drama film written and directed by Louis C.K. and starring C.K., Chloë Grace Moretz, Pamela Adlon, Rose Byrne, Charlie Day, with Helen Hunt and John Malkovich. Premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), it marks C.K.’s first film as director since Pootie Tang, released sixteen years prior.

This bittersweet comedy is about successful TV writer/producer Glen Topher (C.K.), who panics when his spoiled 17-year-old daughter China (Moretz) starts spending time with 68-year-old Leslie Goodwin (Malkovich), a legendary film director with a reputation for dating underage girls.

Conceived in the high style of 1940s Hollywood movies, with lustrous black and white 35mm photography and a soaring orchestral score, the film blends a classic look with C.K.’s raucous modern comic sensibility to tell the story of a flawed man’s struggle to connect with his daughter and get back on his feet as an artist.
