Nicole Holofcener: Enough Said

Nicole Holofcener's Enough Said (2013), a thoughtful indie-style film that's part study in manners, part study in social psychology, stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus, James Gandolfini, Catherine Keeler and Toni Collette. It's a comedy, not a wacky ha-ha comedy but a gentle one, delivered with a light touch and deft observations. I liked and still like it. 

James Gandolfini plays Albert, a librarian-archivist-curator kind of a guy; his ex-wife (Keeler) is a poet. His current "special lady friend" (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), a masseuse, is separately linked to both in an "enough said" kind of way. Groovy city.

Sounds like a solid set of actors. I like their works

Erik-this one looks so good and on your recommendation, I will be seeing it! Hope I can get past missing James.

Seems interesting. I'd give it a chance based on nothing else then it having Julia in it. :p
