Movie Night

I don’t usually do this, but if you must go to a movie this weekend to erase part of this week’s reality, I have a recommendation for you. Actually, the recommendation is from last January when it debuted at the Sundance Festival.  But now you can actually see it, as it is being released this weekend across the country. It’s called Please Give and you can read my review here.

Catherine Keener (l.) and Oliver Platt are shown in a scene from Nicole Holofcener's "Please Give."

Or, if you prefer the review of a professional, you can read the WSJ’s Joe Morgenstern’s review here.

Mr. Morgenstern would have given this wonderful little movie an A+ , if he used such a grading system. I gave it a very solid B+, but then, I don’t grade on the curve.

Seriously, an enjoyable little flick. You should see it. You’ll like it.
