NARRATIVE FEATURE | 90 MIN | 2010

PLEASE GIVE

Life is good for Kate (Catherine Keener) and Alex (Oliver Platt). After decades of marriage, they have settled into a comfortable rapport, and success in their estate-sale antique furniture business has allowed them to finance an expansion of their Greenwich Village apartment. They purchase the (occupied) unit next door, and begin the wait for its elderly tenant Andra (Ann Guilbert) to pass on so they can proceed with their construction plans. Feeling guilty about their impatience for Andra's death, the family reaches out to her granddaughters Mary and Rebecca (respectively Amanda Peet and Rebecca Hall) for some moral grounding, only to find the new relationships compounding their ethical conundrum rather than alleviating it.

Nicole Holofcener returns to themes of her earlier films Friends with Money and Lovely & Amazing, including midlife crises, insecurity, materialism, accumulation of wealth, and the liberal guilt and moral paralysis that accompany them. Holofcener's singular vision imbues these weighty topics with a distinctive humor that makes room for her insightful social commentary, while the stellar ensemble cast interprets her often symbolic characters with a genuine emotion that brings their dilemmas to life.
