‘Enough Said’ is written and directed by Nicole Holofcener. The story revolves around Eva (Julia Louis) who is divorced with one daughter and professionally a Masseuse. When invited by her friends, she goes to a party and meets two people there who changes her life completely.
The first person she meets at the party is Marianne (Catherine Kenner). She is a middle-aged divorced women and a poet by profession. Soon Marianne becomes a massage client of Eva and they eventually become good friends. The second person she meets at the party is Albert (James Gandolfini) who is a middle-aged divorced man and facing very similar problems to Eva. They start dating each other and as their story moves forward some complications arises.
Enough Said is a very realistic and mature movie in all the aspects. The performances by Julia Louis and James Gandolfini are spectacular. They are relatable, simple and real. Both the actors played completely different roles than they usually do, which shows how mature and talented they are as actors. Sadly this was the last move of James Gandolfini since he passed away in a tragic accident last year.
The direction was perfect. The strongest element of this movie after its acting is its script. It’s perfectly paced, a little slow sometimes but that will not get you out of the story.
The movie is emotionally rich, it is as real as it gets when it comes to relationships. Every emotion is handled very well by the director. The dialogues between the two lead characters were perfect and there were no cheesy and unnecessary moments to drag the movie.
Enough Said aptly shows the difference that love makes in a person’s life. This movie is flawless, real and filled with genuine emotions. I give it a four out of five and recommend everyone to watch.
My Rating – 4/5
