Nicole Holofcener
Nicole Holofcener

James Gandolfini and Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Romantic comedy can be rather predictable, but often delicious, and this sharp, insightful film starring James Gandolfini and Julia Louis-Dreyfus dealing with middle-aged people who are over their defunct marriages and are the better for it, is a winner.   

In a wise casting move veteran writer/director Nicole (Walking and Talking, Lovely and Amazing, Friends with Money, Please Give) Holofcener pairs Julia Louis-Dreyfuss as Eva, a masseuse who makes house calls, with the late James Gandolfini as Albert, a portly TV historian. After meeting at a party where they razz one another, Eva and Albert begin dating and soon realize they’re simpatico. Each has a daughter about to go off to college. But even as they face down empty nest syndrome and bond, Eva makes a new friend, a massage client, a poet played by Catherine Keener, who turns out to be Albert’s ex-wife, and whose critique of his annoying tics and habits begins to undermine Eva’s new world.

"Holofcener delivers her most confident character comedy to date - a work of deceptively informal mastery - and Gandolfini's gentle performance just about breaks your heart."

--- Ty Burr, Boston Globe

"Feisty, funny, fizzy and deeply wise, "Enough Said" sparkles within and without, just like the rare gem that it is."

---Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

"One of the pleasures of "Enough Said" is watching Louis-Dreyfus and Gandolfini, two well-known performers only Holofcener would think of putting together, come alive both as individuals and the two halves of a relationship."

---Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
