  • Excerpt: Kate (Catherine Keener, Capote ) and her husband Alex (Oliver Platt, Lake Placid ) run a trendy second-hand furniture store in Manhattan. They buy furniture for next nothing at estate sales and sell it at hugely inflated prices to clueless New Yorkers with money to burn. The couple has a teenage daughter, Abby (Sarah Steele, Spanglish ), who really wants a pair of jeans.

FILMDUDE
9 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Manhattan films about nothing should be a genre of their own. Equal parts smart drama-comedy and introspective reflection on the human condition, "Please Give" is grounded in the angst of reality and near perfect. This is a chick flick populated with grown-ups who are still growing up. The city dwellers dealing with the everyday while struggling with life's big issues like guilt and insecurity are imperfect as well as sharp and funny. Nothing to give just breathe it in.

  • Summary: Please Give gaat over Cathy en Alex die het apartement naast hen van hun kribbige bejaarde buurvrouw Andra willen overnomen. Daarnaast hebben ze hun handen vol aan hun tienerdochter Abby en ook Andra heeft twee dochters die zich in het geheel mengen. Holofcener levert met Please Give een redelijk standaard dramedy af in de traditie van Woody Allen. Nergens heeft het die scherpzinnigheid, maar slecht is het alleszins niet.
