Trailerama: Please Give

Writer-director Nicole Holofcener’s films about how the other half live have always left Squally a little cold. Her latest adds the twist of Catherine Keener’s guilt over the good life. Her antiques dealer makes a living from buying low and selling high. She and husband Oliver Platt are also waiting for their next door neighbor to die so they can expand their apartment. In the plus department, it’s always good to see Keener in a starring role. The cast is rounded out by a gaunt Rebecca Hall and Amanda Peet, who flutters her eyes at Platt. So nice to hear that acoustic faux-blues riff that turns up whenever a comedy is being marketed to the Starbucks set, too.
