Movie Club: Enough Said, Directed by Nicole Holofcener

Some movies take us into fantasy worlds, where we can escape for a few hours. As we watch, we leave the complexity of our daily lives behind. “Enough Said” is not one of those movies.

The basic story line of the movie is that Eva, a middle aged divorced woman (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), starts dating Albert (the late James Gandolfini). The twist is that she learns he is the ex-husband of a new girlfriend (Catherine Keener). Should Eva listen to her new girlfriend’s advice or follow her heart? Read More
