Since making her debut with Walking and Talking in 1996, Nicole Holofcener has been telling female-centred stories that are notable for their wit, intelligence and warmth. Despite the consistently high standard of her work, Holofcener remains one of American cinema's best-kept secrets, with her work failing to find the audience that it deserves. Her new film Enough Said will probably receive more attention that all of her previous films combined, which is a pleasing state of affairs but I wish it were under happier circumstances. This film marks one of the final screen appearances for the late James Gandolfini, and for this reason a whole new audience is likely to encounter Nicole Holofcener's work for the first time.
