Enough Said

Enough Said: I’m a romantic fool. I should hang my head in shame for having let this particular movie stay under my personal radar last year. And you should hang your head in shame for falling asleep watching this movie, Mr. Bowie! This melancholy movie will make you laugh and leave you in tears. Enough Said is a romantic comedy about middle-aged parents with broken relationships and kids about to leave home. It’s a romantic comedy that is romantic and funny and I mean really funny. The film stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus, James Gandolfini (in one of his final roles), Toni Collette, Catherine Keener, Ben Falcone, and Toby Huss. The film is written and directed by Nicole Holofcener. I loved Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Elaine Benes in Seinfeld, and James Gandolfini for everything he’s been in.

Enough Said happens to be the second-to-last film with James Gandolfini in the cast. He died in June 19, 2013 from a heart attack at age 51. James Gandolfini will appear next September in the film The Drop, adapted from a Dennis Lehane story. The film is directed by Michaël R. Roskam, a Belgian film director known for Bullhead (2011). Bullhead was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2012.

Now excuse me, there’s someone knocking on my door. Could that be Julia Louis-Dreyfus? Okay, I’m a romantic fool…
