I Love You, Daddy Film

20 October 2018

I Love You, Daddy was a comedy-drama film written and directed by Louis C.K. It starred C.K., Chloe Grace Moretz, Pamela Adlon, John Malkovich, Rose Byrne, Charlie Day and Helen Hunt, and was co-produced by Vernon Chatman and shot in New York City.

Production for the film was fully secret, with C.K. shooting entirely on black and white 35 mm film in June 2017. C.K.'s long-time collaborator Paul Koestner served as the film's cinematographer. The film's score by Zachary Seman and Robert Miller was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London.

The plot centred on C.K. who played television writer and producer Glen Topher, and who became disconcerted after his teenage daughter, played by Moretz was seduced by a much older film director played by Malkovich.

The film premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival on September 9th and was initially scheduled to be released in the United States on November 17th of the same year. However, the film was dropped following sexual misconduct accusations made against C.K. a week prior to the intended debut. On December 8th, it was reported that C.K. was purchasing the film's global distribution rights back from The Orchard. Asked about C.K.'s move to purchase the rights, lead actress Chloe Grace Moretz said in an August 2018 interview with The New York Times that she would prefer the movie "just kind of go away, honestly" adding that "it’s devastating to put time into a project and have it disappear". She elaborated the following month that she doesn't "think that it’s a perspective or a story that needs to be told in this day and age, especially in the wake of everything that’s come to light".

On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 37% based on 41 reviews, with an average rating of 5.5/10. On Metacritic, which assigns a normalised rating to reviews, the film has a weighted average score of 56 out of 100, based on reviews from 18 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews". The Guardian film critic Peter Bradshaw gave the film a four-star review, calling it a "very funny and recklessly provocative homage to Woody Allen, channelling his masterpiece Manhattan." Variety critic Owen Gleiberman was less positive, writing that "the film meanders, and its second half is shapeless," although he praised the dialogue and cast.
