Please Give is the latest film from Nicole Holofcener, the talky, female-driven auteur behind Walking and Talking, Friends With Money, and the lovely and amazing Lovely & Amazing. I always look forward to her films, because I strongly believe the dialogue in her films is among and smartest and funniest in current cinema, and because she always gives the wonderful Catherine Keener a plum role. We shall soon see if her latest gifts to up-and-coming actressses like Amanda Peet and Rebecca Hall (Vicky Cristina Barcelona) are treated as such. The film already successfully played the Sundance and Berlin Film Festivals, and arrives in April.
