Enough Said

{4.5/5} “Yes, yes, the Container Store. The store that sells crap so you can put your crap in so you can go out and buy some more crap.”

Eva is a masseuse, she’s divorced, and her daughter’s about to head off to college. At a party she meets Albert who works at a library of television programs. He’s also divorced and his daughter is about to head off to college. They start dating. She also meets Marianne, who becomes a client. Like many of her clients, Marianne talks a lot while they’re together — and she often complains about her ex-husband. Eva is shocked to find out that Marianne’s ex-husband is Albert.

Enough Said was released in 2013.

If you’re tired of romance movies where the characters are a decade or two¬†younger than you, this is the movie for you.

I hadn’t seen James Gandolfini in anything and I’d only seen Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Seinfeld, which had its moments but wasn’t my favourite show. Both of them are terrific here — they play likeable characters you’ll cheer for.

The movie is very funny.

It’s about new romance, old romance, and family.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus (the TV show Veep) plays Eva and James Gandolfini (the TV show The Sopranos) plays Albert. Catherine Keener (Out of Sight) plays Marianne and Toni Collette (Mary and Max) plays Eva’s friend Sarah.

The movie was directed by Nicole Holofcener (Please Give).
