Please seeBy zorilla (228 reviews) from Kew, Richmond , 12 Jan 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]A great ensemble film about real grown ups with real grown up problems, honestly directed with a smart, funny and sincere script.
If you thought all mainstream Hollywood family dramas were trite, ridiculous and horribly manipulative please see this film and realise that there is still a glimmer of hope for those of us who care about quality film making.

Lovely little filmBy a customer , 31 Oct 2011Really enjoyed this. Outstanding performance from Catherine Keener as usual. It's an indie sort of flick, so don't get it if you are expecting anything else. Not a huge amount happens and it's concentrated between two small families and neighbours in New York City. Personally I love this sort of film. The details and performances are nuanced and subtle. Surprisingly good.
Are you kidding me?By a customer , 16 Oct 2011Are you kidding me? This is not a movie. Boring mediocre tv at best. If you are looking for something in the background on a quiet day then I suppose this would be ok, however if you want to sit and be entertained give this a miss.
somebody help the furnitureBy a customer , 28 Sep 2011looked sooooooo boring I actually fell asleep with the dvd in my hand!!!! didnt even make it to the dvd player !!!!!
Woody Allen school of angstBy a customer , 20 Aug 2011This is the type of US cinema I love and what the Americans do so well. 'Please Give' is well written, the actors perform to a high standard and the script is engaging. It may not be to everyone's cup of tea and although some characters will admit to their own self-indulgence if they were true, it all adds to the individual charm.
NOT A FORMULA FILMBy Eirini (9 reviews) , 16 Aug 2011charming film with good characters. it doesn't really have a story to tell except the everyday lives and emotional ups and downs of a few well developed characters. yes it is different, but that is what makes it wonderful. the true film lover will enjoy this one.
