NEW YORK: It sounds like a misprint, but it's not: Sally Field has headlined just one movie in the last two decades.Then there's the fact that Field isn't much inclined to play, as she says, "the traditional mother thing".In the film, directed and cowritten by Michael Showalter, Field stars as a spinsterish, daydreaming New York accountant who, after her mother dies, cautiously begins seeking out new experiences and pursuing – comically, awkwardly, sweetly – a much younger man: an art director at her Manhattan office played by Max Greenfield.Holding it all together is the ever-plucky Field, outfitted with two pairs of eyeglasses around her neck and a nest of hair, Field's intentionally messy version of a Brigitte Bardot doo.Made for only about $1 million and shot in three weeks, it's an unusually indie project for Field, who jumped at the chance to play Doris. In person, Field is disarmingly direct. Those who work with her say that straightforward matter-of-factness is how she approaches making a movie, too. Field would seem to have little in common with the timid Doris, but she acknowledges having "terrible social anxiety".
