Judd Hirsch Gets an iPhone in Indie Comedy Film ‘iMordecai’ Trailer
“It’s nice to be old. It’s nice to have fun with no buttons.” Greenwich Ent. has revealed an official trailer for an indie comedy titled iMordecai, which is an amusing title for this film about a cranky old timer whose life is changed when he gets a new iPhone. How’s that for a story? This initially premiered at the 2022 Naples Film Festival last year, and is set in Florida. A holocaust survivor born and raised in a different time, must now face the realities of modern world. when confronted with an unfamiliar object, an iPhone will Mordecai be able to fit into a world that has changed so much around him? Starring the wonderful actor Judd Hirsch (he’s also in The Fabelmans) as Mordecai, along with Sean Astin, Carol Kane, Nick Puga, and Azia Dinea Hale. This actually looks really sweet and nice, not as cheesy as expected. Might actually be an entertaining and uplifting film worth watching, a nice break from all these usual depressing stories.
