Becky and I went to see Enough Said on Friday at the AMC Theaters in Castle Rock, CO. The Fandango website at Enough Said describes the movie as follows…
”A divorced and single parent, Eva (Julia Louis Dreyfus) spends her days enjoying work as a masseuse but dreading her daughter’s impending departure for college. She meets Albert (James Gandolfini) – a sweet, funny and like-minded man also facing an empty nest. As their romance quickly blossoms, Eva befriends Marianne (Catherine Keener), her new massage client. Marianne is a beautiful poet who seems “almost perfect” except for one prominent quality: she rags on her ex-husband way too much. Suddenly, Eva finds herself doubting her own relationship with Albert as she learns the truth about Marianne’s Ex…”
The Review: Enough Said was James Gandolfini’s last film before passing away, while on vacation. We didn’t know what to expect going into this movie, but I had clients who had seen this film and they told me that it was pretty good. It’s a story about a few people going through Middle Age after having divorced and trying to figure out who they are going forward. The dynamics of the movie are very interesting because it shows how easy it is to find faults with people over little things. For example, there is this part in the film where the ex-husband separates the onions from his guacamole and it drove his ex-wife crazy to the point that she couldn’t stand him any longer. The reality is that it wasn’t that big of a deal.
This movie is a really good rental or Date Night film for older couples, who have had more life experiences. I don’t think it’s for everyone, but it will make you think about how you treat people that you love and are you taking them for granted? We both liked it and I would say that it’s somewhere between Worth The Trip and a Renal, so we’ll split it between the two.his is a movie that has no special effects, no far fetched plot, but just dealing with the realities of real life and the consequences of not being honest in relationships with people.
It’s a very good movie with a great story that will make you think about how you relate to other people. Can you forgive others and move on or will you hang on to the past and let it predict your future? Often times people do not look at the good that comes out of a relationship, but only the bad. In one part of the movie, the main character has dinner with her ex-husband and complains about him ordering bread for the table because she will eat it. It’s very trivial, but how many times to do people allow the trivial to destroy their relationships that have meaning?
