Tony Soprano has a meet-cute with Elaine Benes. Enough Said.
Well, actually, that’s not the gist at all of Enough Said, the indie romantic comedy from Nicole Holofcener (Friends With Money). James Gandolfini, in one of his final performances, plays a sweet divorced dad who falls for a neurotic massage therapist (Julia Louis-Dreyfus). Potential problem: His ex is one of the therapist’s new clients, a woman (Catherine Keener) who bitches incessantly about her former husband to her massage therapist without knowing the damage she is creating. As a result, Louis-Dreyfus’ character can’t help but see her new boyfriend through his ex’s eyes. So when Gandolfini says to her after a date, “Why do I feel like I just spent the evening with my ex-wife?” — undoubtedly one of the cruelest sentences in the English language — there’s some truth there.

Albert’s Sunday garb was a great touch; but I almost wish he was wearing a white robe instead.
Enough Said debuts at next month’s Toronto Film Festival and will open in theaters on Sept. 20.
