With a new iPhone, an apartment near The Grove and a comfortable bank account left to her by her beloved late husband, Marnie Minervini (Sarandon) has happily relocated from New Jersey to Los Angeles to be near her daughter Lori (Byrne), a successful (but still single) screenwriter, and smother her with motherly love. But when the dozens of texts, unexpected visits and conversations dominated by unsolicited advice force Lori to draw strict personal boundaries, Marnie finds ways to channel her eternal optimism and forceful generosity to change the lives of others. While making new friends, she finds a new purpose in life and launches into an unexpected romance with a motorcycle-riding ex-cop named Zipper (Simmons)…

Written and directed by Loren Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World), the Blu-ray, DVD & digital versions of the film include commentary, a gag reel and two featurettes. In “The ‘Real’ Marnie,” Scafaria sits with her mother to discuss the creative evolution of the film and how she prepped Susan Sarandon for the role; while viewers get a behind-the-scenes peek at “The Making of The Meddler,” featuring interviews with the cast and crew.
