Enough Said is an upcoming comedy starring James Gandolfini, Toni Collette, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Catherine Keener. This new film is written and directed by Nicole Holofcener and revolves around the story of a woman who after her divorce decides to pursue the man she’s been interested in. The only catch in this plan is that, the man she is pursuing is her new friend’s ex-husband. Check out the latest buzz for Enough Said below:
“Nicole Holofcener, Director of Enough Said Talks About Her Life In Her New Film
Dinner parties on the Westside of Los Angeles are never a simple affair. To pull off the casual elegance required of such an evening often entails hours of painstaking planning. The same can be said of a movie re-creation of such a party, where the glasses must be refilled to a particular height, the dip placed just right and the question of whether to use coasters becomes an actual dilemma.
“Would it be blasphemous if we don’t use coasters?” asks Nicole Holofcener, the writer-director of “Enough Said,” a new romantic comedy starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus and the late James Gandolfini in one of his last roles. It’s August 2012, and the 53-year old auteur is putting the final touches on a living room scene between her two stars, attending a dinner party as a new couple with friends played by Toni Collette and Ben Falcone.
“Can I put a few napkins here in case something terrible happens?” Gandolfini wonders, worried that the fierce guacamole scooping he’s about to embark on is going to turn ugly.
(Gandolfini died almost a year after the production wrapped, on June 19 of a heart attack. Speaking to The Times last month, Louis-Dreyfus said the impact of her co-star’s death was “just brutal, and very, very sad.” But she was cheered at the thought of audiences seeing a new side of him in “Enough Said.” “He’s extraordinary in it,” she said. “It’s a gorgeous performance.”)
On set, as production assistants scurry around the bright, well-lit craftsman home, Louis-Dreyfus leans back in her seat with her wine glass and asks, “Don’t you all wish we were at a real dinner party right now? Wouldn’t that be fun?”
The cast seems to be having a good time even though they are drinking nothing stronger than cran-grape juice. The production, to hit theaters Sept. 20, marks Holofcener’s fifth feature film and her first to look at a pending empty-nest scenario — the very situation single mom Holofcener finds herself in as she prepares to send her children off to college and contemplates what the next chapter of her life will look like.
In the film, Louis-Dreyfus plays Eva, a fiftysomething masseuse trudging along in her life, envious of those around her who seem like they have it all figured out. Along the way, she meets Gandolfini’s Albert, a sweet, somewhat uncomplicated man. Independently of him, she also meets and befriends his ex-wife, Marianne (Holofcener regular Catherine Keener). After listening to her new friend’s litany of complaints about her ex, Eva realizes she’s talking about her own new love interest.”
