Hateship Loveship

Now Playing Synopsis: Director Liza Johnson's low-key drama Hateship Loveship stars Kristen Wiig as Johanna, a mild-mannered woman hired by Mr. McCauley (Nick Nolte) to care for his granddaughter Sabitha (Hailee Steinfeld), whose teen growing pains are exacerbated by her irresponsible father Ken (Guy Pearce) and the fact that her mother passed away. Sabitha and her best friend begin catfishing Johanna, convincing her that Ken, who lives in a different city, has fallen in love with her. When Johanna makes the first impulsive decision of her life to travel to Ken, the truth comes out, but unexpected ramifications are in store for everyone. Hateship Loveship screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi Cast: Kristen Wiig, Guy Pearce, Nick Nolte, Hailee Steinfeld Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
