Performers, Cast and Crew:
Entertainment Weekly - 04/30/2010
"[A] marvelously observed new domestic drama....In PLEASE GIVE, the sharp-eyed filmmaker sends her vibrant representative out into the world to explore what it means for a woman to be lucky and still feel itchy." -- Grade: A-
A.V. Club - 04/29/2010
"Writer-director Nicole Holofcener has a gift for converting small, everyday situations into the kind of gentle comedy that some viewers relate to easily..." -- Grade: A-
Los Angeles Times - 04/30/2010
"With her new film, the poignant and funny PLEASE GIVE, Holofcener is at the top of her game."
Chicago Sun-Times - 05/05/2010
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The movie is about imperfect characters in a difficult world, who mostly do the best they can under the circumstances, but not always. Do you realize what a revolutionary approach that is for a movie these days'
Movieline - 04/29/2010
"[O]ne way Holofcener works her stealth magic as a filmmaker and storyteller: She doesn't close up shop on her movie until she's made each of us an honorary New Yorker -- in other words, a person with a strong stance and something to say."
New York Times - 04/30/2010
"No one in American movies does difficult women better than Ms. Keener, who's fearless when it comes to nasty, cold roles, yet resists caricature."
Variety - 01/23/2010
"[A] tart but sympathetic ensembler....Like Holofcener's previous pictures, PLEASE GIVE derives its narrative energy less from a series of plotted incidents than from its keenly observed interplay of clashing personality tics and worldviews."
Hollywood Reporter - 01/23/2010
"Think of PLEASE GIVE as a finely tuned short story with every glance and gesture full of suggestive meaning."
Washington Post - 05/14/2010
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A] wry, wistful portrait of contemporary urban manners..."
Wall Street Journal - 04/30/2010
"This gorgeous film, always tender and sometimes dark, is a deeply resonant comic drama that's concerned with nothing less than life, death, love, sex, guilt and the urban logic of mortality."
USA Today - 12/31/2010
Included in USA Today's "10 Best Films Of 2010" -- "[E]mploying razor-sharp dialogue and a superb ensemble cast..."
Total Film - 03/01/2011
4 stars out of 5 -- "Holofcenter's movie shows a sharp eye for exquisite embarrassments..."
Uncut - 03/01/2011
4 stars out of 5 -- "Nicole Holofcener's examinations of insecurities and delusions of aspirational New Yorkers is her best since 1996's WALKING AND TALKING."
