The Meddler

In brief: Marnie Minervini, is a compulsive advice-giver, Recently widowed, ceaselessly cheerful, Marnie cannot stop texting, calling, and showing up unannounced at the home of her daughter, Lori. . Desperate to gain some control over her life following a messy breakup, Lori attempts to draw boundaries, but that only serves to unleash Marnie's meddling upon the greater Los Angeles area. Marnie starts to chauffeur the nice young Apple Store clerk to his college classes. She gives thousands of dollars to a not-especially-close friend of Lori's so she can have her dream wedding. Whether out of habit or in an unconscious avoidance of grief, Marnie can't stop being a mom to everyone she meets. But a chance encounter with a charismatic chicken-raising, rent-a-cop could spark a chance for Marnie to leave her characteristic supporting role behind and finally become the star of her own life. The Meddler is about that force of nature known as the doting mother.
