Enough Said

Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Nicole Holofcener has a reputation for making Woody Allen-ish chick-flicks. Which sounds like a snidey compliment. ‘Enough Said’ is her best yet – it’s what we wanted from the new ‘Bridget Jones’ book, a smart comedy about dating in your 50s. It’s also sad because this is James Gandolfini’s second-last film. He’s arty Albert – a million miles from Tony Soprano (and maybe closer to Gandolfini, who said: ‘I’m basically like a 260-pound Woody Allen’).

When Albert meets Eva (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) at a party, something clicks. Trouble is Eva has just met his ex-wife Marianne (Catherine Keener) and has a huge girl crush on her. At first Eva doesn’t make a link between the Albert she’s dating and the loser slob Marianne describes. When she twigs, she’s hooked on Marianne’s list of his failings. If you’ve ever sat watching your other half at dinner wondering how much longer you can stomach them using a finger as a knife, this is for you.
