Enough Said 2013 ****

Writer/director Nicole Holofcener pulls of a rare feat with 2013’s Enough Said, a star-driven romantic comedy that deftly skips most rom-com traps and is set in a recognizably real world. Julia Louis Dreyfus has never been better than as Eva, a divorced mother who meets and becomes romantically entangled with charming slob Albert (James Gandolfini). Things are complicated when it transpires that one of Eva’s clients through her massage business, poetess Marianne (Catherine Keener) is Albert’s ex-wife, and Eva commits a cardinal sit by not speaking up for herself as Marianne unwittingly marks her card about Albert’s faults. Enough Said is a beautifully wrought film about relationships, consummately played and a great tribute to Gandolfini.
