Please Give

Rated R 90 min. 2010

In this mellow comedy from Nicole Holofcener (Lovely and Amazing), Catherine Keener plays Kate, an Upper West Sider who owns a modern furniture store with her husband Alex (Oliver Platt). At home, Kate and Alex—who have bought the apartment next to theirs in hopes of renovating—are, in effect, waiting for their elderly neighbor Andra (Ann Guilbert) to croak. Andra's daughters, Rebecca (Rebecca Hall) and Mary (Amanda Peet), have different takes on mom's neighbors: Rebecca resents them, while Mary couldn't care less. As the lives of the families intersect, Holofcener is able to make a few minutes of throwaway small talk into a witty examination of the nature of guilt, what it means to be honest, or the complexities of charity.
