    Louis C.K. recently premiered his second feature-length film, I Love You, Daddy, at the Toronto International Film Festival. A wide release is slated for November 17th and, in anticipation, a full-length trailer has been revealed. Watch it above.

    The film tells the story of a TV writer and producer played by C.K., who welcomes his 17-year old daughter, Chyna (Chloë Grace Moretz) into his home, but struggles with the discipline necessary for fatherhood. Things get especially complicated once she begins dating a creepy older filmmaker (John Malkovich), who is allegedly patterned after Woody Allen.

    Despite featuring an A-list cast that also includes Charlie DayHelen Hunt, and Edie Falco, I Love You, Daddy was nevertheless made in secret, much like C.K.’s web series, Horace and Pete. Shot in 35mm, the film features a crisp black and white palette and a lush, orchestral score.

    Our own Sarah Kurchak caught the film at TIFF and, despite finding it “sporadically amusing,” struggled with how the film “consistently pushes every boundary it comes across” without “[breaking] any truly innovative ground.” Read her review here.
