PLEASE GIVE

Directed by Nicole Holofcener
United States, 2010

Synopsis

Married antique-dealers Kate and Alex plan on gutting the apartment they own next door to expand their own pad once Andra, the cranky, elderly widow who lives there, finally dies. When Kate, conflicted with her own guilt, befriends Andra’s granddaughter, the results are anything but predictable.

Our take

Nicole Holofcener has been delivering relaxed yet incisive portrayals of middle-class life in New York City since 1996’s Walking and Talking. With a consistently inspired cast matched by a great script, Please Give is another welcome entry into her cinema of community, womanhood and endless wit.
