Like many recent college grads, Dora (Edith Brolin) doesn't know what to do with her life. She spends most of her time in daydreams about traveling the globe and becoming a romantic poet, while her overly practical mother is more focused on her daughter staying at home in New Jersey to prepare for the LSATs. After learning her great-aunt Vera (Oscar Winner Diane Ladd) is injured and requires assistance at her home in Upstate NY, Dora jumps at the chance to escape, hoping to find her true calling. I Dream Too Much, the sophomore feature from director Katie Cokinos, is a light-hearted, dreamy story of self-discovery that initiates a candid relationship between two artistic, intelligent women two generations apart. In the time they spend together, both Dora and Vera will learn that no matter your age, now is always a good time to follow your dreams.
