Starring Susan Sarandon, The Meddler is best described as a cute independent film that delves into touching subject matter with a mixture of comedy and romance. The acting is top-notch with Susan Sarandon playing an overly meddlesome mother to her daughter played by Rose Byrne who is dealing with a recent heartbreak. Sarandon’s character is willing to help anyone while trying to deal with heartbreak of her own that she stubbornly refuses to confront. Her character eventually becomes romantically involved with the always superb JK Simmons who plays an endearing motorcycle-riding retired cop. The Meddler is a very good light-hearted film that provides the right material for its exceptional cast to display their comedic, romantic, and dramatic range of talent.
