“ENOUGH SAID” Movie Review. About LIFE and taking SECOND CHANCES.
“ENOUGH SAID” PRESS REVIEW
The advertising slogan really hits hard on you, if you allow it to do so.
It cajoles you that this movie is everything insightful, funny and stunningly performed. It is.
Writer and helmer Nicole Holofcener delivers a heartwarming message, admonishing us not to wallow in self-pity with this elusive element called love.
Should you suffer an unhappy first marriage, no problem …. there’re enough valid reasons not to heap past issues upon a new found second relationship.
“ENOUGH SAID” the movie explores the nuances of love during one’s middle years.
Everyone will grow old eventually, so fat hope to cosmetic laden dreamers who think they can be the Peter Pans of everlasting youth.
WE call this taking “second chances”.
Rather than mopping over your disastrous first, this one demonstrates any middle aged man or woman can still enjoy singlehood again despite failed marriages.
“ENOUGH SAID” is all about our two leads Julia Louis-Dreyfus and James Gandolfini.
A chance encounter leads them to discover they have the hots for each other and they waste no time in starting a sexual relationship. When there’s love, there’s sex, isn’t this thrilling? (guffaw)
But will they be able to juggle another relationship?
Our morale booster here nods YES, but be mindful that second chances will bring along its far share of emotional baggage.
Because nobody likes to grow old without a loving companion. Sad.
Actor James Gandolfini the sweet bearlike actor died unexpectedly in June 2013 at age 51.
So this film is a fond farewell of sorts.
He shared an affable screen chemistry with Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
Gandolfini, who was 51, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, 52, play divorced parents who begin dating, but they are also wary of past romantic failures.
Shot on a modest budget, ENOUGH SAID is a fascinating and powerful film.
It has a perfect blend of humor and heart.
