What happens when you take a shy San Fernando Valley girl who lives with her father and throw her into a mix of glitzy models, glamour and romance? Dorfman is a hilarious and touching new comedy set in Downtown LA that pays homage to one of the world’s most vibrant cities. Deb Dorfman dotes on her widowed father, works for her brother and is hopelessly in love his best friend. But when she cat-sits in his city apartment, her life is flung into a whirlwind of excitement and drama. When it comes to finding true love in this new world, will Deb make the right choice? Featuring superb performances from Sara Rue (The Big Bang Theory, Popular, Less Than Perfect) and Elliot Gould (M*A*S*H, Friends, Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Twelve and Ocean’s Thirteen) and a host of quirky characters, Deb’s dazzling metamorphosis from awkward wallflower to social butterfly is as charming as it is moving. One of the warmest, most thoughtful romantic comedies of the festival. Contains scenes of a sexual nature.
