Tanner D. (TD) from ANKENY, IA
Reviewed on 11/9/2011...
Some indie and not-so-indie DVD film releases alike try to lure the audience in by plastering misleading festival banners that they have been shown in, awards they may have been given, and verbatim, often out of context, quotes from the press. The lattermost would be the only option that would apply to Please Give's cover art and subsequent back art and synopsis. But make no mistake: None of the above need apply.

This wonderful slice-of-life gem from writer/director Nicole Holofcener highlights the less glamorous and molds it into something serene. A solid cast led by Catherine Keener takes a good script and turns into something unique while allowing the viewers to feel passion for even the more cynical characters. While not overly funny, the humor can be razor-sharp, most notably by Dick Van Dyke and The Nanny fame TV actress Ann Morgan Guilbert. My only gripe about the film is that the plot felt slightly misguided for an iota amount of time before finding its steam and powering forward with emotion and depth. While the replay value may not be high, this is a slow burning film everyone should see that dances with the macabre but eventually makes you feel good.
