Puccini for Beginners

type

Director Maria Maggenti says it best in the commentary for Puccini for Beginners: ”This is a talky movie about self-absorbed people in New York City.” Allegra (Elizabeth Reaser) falls for a perky glassblower (Mol) and a brainy professor (Kirk) — ex-lovers themselves. Unfortunately, the romantic entanglements are more exhausting than intriguing. EXTRAS The commentary, however, is full of fun footnotes: Mol actually made a pretty glass paperweight; her mom’s painting hangs in Allegra’s living room; Maggenti’s apartment served as the main set.
