Johnny and I went to the movies this past Tuesday, and we found a winner. We liked this comedy. If you get a chance, I recommend you see this one. Here's a synopsis:
A divorced and single parent, Eva (Julia Louis Dreyfus) spends her days enjoying work as a masseuse but dreading her daughter's impending departure for college. She meets Albert (James Gandolfini) - a sweet, funny and like-minded man also facing an empty nest. As their romance quickly blossoms, Eva befriends Marianne (Catherine Keener), her new massage client. Marianne is a beautiful poet who seems "almost perfect" except for one prominent quality: she rags on her ex-husband way too much.
Suddenly, Eva finds herself doubting her own relationship with Albert as she learns the truth about Marianne's Ex. ENOUGH SAID is a sharp, insightful comedy that humorously explores the mess that often comes with getting involved again.
You'll notice both stars are wearing Blue.
The acting is flawless. Both Julia Louis Dreyfus and James Gandolfini gave Oscar-winning performances. Unfortunately, Gandolfini died from a heart attack in June at aged 51 after completing work on the film.
The characters are believable. The writing gives a storyline that seems true to life. We left the theater with many things to think about and discuss.
Some people think that movies are too expensive, but we go to a theater that offers films to seniors Monday - Thursday afternoons for only $5.00. In addition, a small popcorn is only $2.00 on Tuesdays.
Happy Blue Monday!
