Please Give - Movie Review

Please Give (R) 90 minutes B+
Giving us something to think about

Starring Catherine Keener, Amanda Peet, Oliver Platt, Rebecca Hall, Sarah Steel, and Ann Guilbert

Sometimes the best gifts come in small packages. That's the case with Please Give, a humanistic slice of life film that doesn't impact you all at once, rather it builds slowly on the screen and in your mind long after you've left the theatre.

Directed by Nicole Holofcener (Friends With Money, Lovely and Amazing, Walking and Talking), she quietly continues to make thought-provoking art that imitates life.

In short, Please Give is about living, dying and the mundane, complex and guilt that it often brings (without bringing you down).

Recommended for fans of indie films, Catherine Keener, Amanda Peet and/or Rebecca Hall who delivers one of her best performances.
