Friends With Money

Jennifer Aniston comes into her own with this funny and sensitive comedy about four lifelong friends. The ones with money--Joan Cusack, Frances McDormand, and Catherine Keener--all have husbands and careers; Aniston works as a maid, smokes dope, and can't sustain a relationship. In her third feature Nicole Holofcener (Walking and Talking, Lovely & Amazing) leapfrogs between characters with wit and grace, gathering them in various clusters and adroitly showing how money or the lack thereof really does inflect their lives and interactions. With Greg Germann, Simon McBurney, Jason Isaacs, and Scott Caan. R, 88 min. Century 12 and CineArts 6, Landmark's Century Centre.
