at the movies: please give


I saw a matinee of Please Give yesterday and really liked it, even though the ending was a bit underwhelming. If you prefer great dialogue and interesting characters to action/adventure (boooooring!) then you will probably like it too. Plus, two of the characters own a vintage furniture shop with lots of Mid-Century eye candy.

I really like the female perspective in Nicole Holofcener's films (She also wrote/directed Friends with Money). The women are always a bit more complex and there is always one character that I can identify with.


  1. oh, i LOVED friends with money. i felt like i could identify with every single character. this one is definitely going on the ‘to see’ list, and maybe i’ll even treat myself to a trip to the theater!
