I LOVE YOU DADDY (2017): A Nymphet's Affair with an "Aging Filmmaker"


Variety posted: "The release of Louis C.K.’s new film “I Love You, Daddy” has been scrapped in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations levied against the comedian.

“The Orchard will not be moving forward with the release of ‘I Love You, Daddy,'” the indie film company announced in a terse statement on Friday morning.

The New York Times published a bombshell report [...] in which five women accused the comic of sexual misconduct. They claim that he pressured them to watch or listen as he masturbated."

And Deadline posted: "In the wake of The Orchard scrapping the domestic release of Louis C.K.’s I Love You, Daddy amid the sexual misconduct scandal that surrounds the comedian, overseas distributors are following suit. The Orchard has confirmed to Deadline that all of its international distribution partners are canceling their releases."

Here's IMDb plot summary for I Love You, Daddy (2017):

When a successful television writer's [seventeen-year-old] daughter becomes the interest of an aging filmmaker with an appalling past, he becomes worried about how to handle the situation. 

C.K. directed the film and wrote the script. Consequently, the most we may be able to see of the age-gap film is the trailer.
