Eva Meets Albert — Enough Said

This week, Amanda and Joey watch the endearing and fun Enough Said, starring the late, great James Gandolfini and the hilarious Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Enough Said

Probably best known for his tough guys like Tony Soprano in The Sopranos or enforcer Virgil in True Romance, the late James Gandolfini’s final starring role was totally unexpected.

Sensitive and funny, Gandolfini’s Albert pairs perfectly with Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Eva, who also gets to go beyond her usual cutting sarcasm and explore a wider range of emotions as a divorcee looking for love, caught between a new beau and a new friend.

Amanda and Joey had differing opinions on Catherine Keener’s Mary-Anne (though Keener is a gem), but overall they agree that this is a modern romance classic and a reminder that we lost Gandolfini far too young.

This positive review from The New York Times. Emotions running high at the movie’s premiere. A touching memorial to the late James Gandolfini. Julia Louis-Dreyfus talking Selina Meyer and Veep. Nicole Holofcener also directed the legendary “Last Fuckable Day” from Inside Amy Schumer. Homer is still one of the most popular poets at Barnes and Noble but most of the best-sellers are young and contemporary. While we’re on the subject of poets, one of Amanda’s favorites is Anne Carson.

Don’t forget to pop Amanda’s The Different Hole recipe into the freezer.
