A lovely, melancholy comedy of mid-life errors and eros, “Enough Said” deserves our thanks for many things, not least for showcasing the late, great James Gandolfini in a performance of immense tenderness and charm. Julia Louis-Dreyfus — again, more vulnerable than we’re used to — plays an LA single mom who can’t believe her good fortune in finding a man (Gandolfini) with whom she naturally clicks. So she doesn’t believe it, allowing his ex-wife (Catherine Keener) to pour poison into her ear.
Writer-director Nicole Holofcener (“Friends With Money,” “Walking and Talking”) delivers her most confident character comedy to date — a work of deceptively informal mastery — and Gandolfini’s gentle performance just about breaks your heart. With Tracey Fairaway and Toni Collette. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
