Since the loss of her mother, Doris hasn't really had much companionship. She has her best friend and work colleagues but love has always been something that's alluded her. She once had an offer of marriage but knowing that this would separate her from her mother, she declined.
After meeting the new director of art at her place of work, Doris automatically feels a connection with him. Sure, John might be a few years her junior and into very different things to herself, but Doris has a niggling feeling she can't leave alone. Doris might be a little bookish and bespectacled but she decides to explore new methods to attract her man.
Along the way Doris befriends some of John's friends, who at first might seem entirely different to Doris but in actuality have a lot of similarities. Doris must find a way to balance her new and old friends and also win her man. Hello, My Name is Doris actually started out as an eight minute short called Doris and the Intern, written and directed by Laura Terruso. Director Michael Showalter instantly saw the potential in the initial footage and started work on a large scale version of the film.

The Tony-winning actress is currently starring in wedding-themed musical It Shoulda Been You, and hours after America's top judges' ruling on Friday (26Jun15), Daly made a moving speech after the cast's final bows to address the historic day.
Filled with emotion, Daly told the audience, "On the 26th of June, 1966, I got married - that's 49 years ago - I had black hair then and he had black skin, and our marriage was against the law in the United States of America in 17 states. The following year, the Supreme Court, in a case wonderfully called Loving v. Virginia, took down those miscegenation laws."
Daly, who was married to Cuban-American actor Georg Stanford Brown, continued, "They took down a bad law that said that people who love each other can't get married, and I am so proud of my country, and I am so proud of the Supremes - who have made some bad decisions from time to time - but I think today is amazing."
