Enough Said

A divorced masseuse (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) meets a congenial television archivist (James Gandolfini) and a snobbish poet (Catherine Keener) at a party. As she embarks on a serious relationship with the former and a friendly client arrangement with the ladder, she finds herself drawn to the flame and making inappropriate omissions when she discovers these two new associates were once married. Nicole Holofcener's Enough Said is a charming and funny romantic comedy, featuring two lovable lead performances, and functions as yet one more bittersweet sendoff for Gandolfini, who is delightful to watch speak the director's female-centric dialogue. The movie goes on just a little too long and its resolution is a little too neat but Louis-Dreyfus and Gandolfini are so endearing that it hardly makes these quibbles relevant.
