Enough Said

With this low-key dramatic comedy, writer-director Nicole Holofcener (Friends With Money, Please Give) makes some poignant observations about divorce, dating in later life, and relationships between parents and teenage children. A divorced, middle-aged masseuse (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) starts seeing another divorced parent (James Gandolfini in one of his last performances) without realizing that his bitter ex-wife (Holofcener regular Catherine Keener) is one of her clients. Holofcener elicits relaxed and relatable work from the entire cast—which also includes Toni Collette and local blogger Tavi Gevinson—and displays a strong ear for the patter of upper-middle-class passive-aggression. On a visual level, though, this is indistinguishable from most TV sitcoms, the bland presentation resulting in a suffocating air of complacency.
