I don't know whether to laugh with excitement or to cry in sorrow, but this trailer for September's 'Enough Said' had me so excited and yet so saddened. The passing of James Gandolfini has yet to settle with me. It has to be the hardest celebrity death I've had to endure in all my years of movie-watching and celebrity obsessing. He'll always be one of my favorites. Still, the chance to see him in his farewell piece at the end of the year brings a tear to my eyes and smile to my face. This lighthearted comedy, written and directed by Nicole Holofcener, looks tremendous. The chemistry between the entire cast is sensational, with all four stars (Gandolfini, Louis-Dreyfus, Collette and Holofcener regular Keener) giving it such clean, natural charisma. Holofcener has a way with her actors and has pulled out great performances in her films before, so why should this be any different? I expect to see the Globes shower this come year's end, especially if this gets good ink. Is it too much to ask for a posthumous Oscar nomination for Gandolfini? His career deserved at least one! I doubt it will happen, but I won't rule it out.
Oh, and here is the poster. Simple, yet effective. I can't wait for September 20th. This looks like a great date night movie!
