Fox Searchlight’s Enough said, starring James Gandolfini and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, has a lovely premise: a woman falls in love with this guy just as she’s also becoming friends with his ex-wife – who has nothing good to say about him. It’s a film that seems to be making the most of Gandolfini’s charm and Louis-Dreyfus’ ability to go awkward. Enough Said also stars Toni Collette and Catherine Keener (as the ex).

Enough said will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival before getting its theatrical release on September 20th. The trailer is just on the other side of the jump.
