Louis C.K.'s new 'I Love You, Daddy' trailer channels Woody Allen in more ways than one
A black and white film shot in New York delving into the relationship drama of a large ensemble cast? Where have we seen that before?
The new trailer for Louis C.K.'s upcoming "I Love You, Daddy" hit the web Tuesday to a mixed bag of reactions. C.K. seems to nail his trademark black comedy but the prevailing theme is raising some eyebrows.
Himself dating a younger actress played by Rose Byrne, C.K. stars as Glen Topher a successful producer doing his best to prevent his 17-year-old daughter (Chloe Grace Moretz) from dating an aged filmmaker (John Malkovich).
Shot entirely in secret and funded by C.K., "I Love You, Daddy" premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival Sept. 9. Critics haven't been especially warm, citing some of them more "nausea-inducing" themes. Currently sitting at 59% on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, "I Love You, Daddy" opens for wide release Dec. 1.
