Trailer Summary

The trailer for Please Give. Kate (Catherine Keener) has a lot on her mind. There-s the ethics problem of buying furniture on the cheap at estate sales and marking it up at her trendy Manhattan store (and how much markup can she get away with?). There-s the materialism problem of not wanting her teenage daughter (Sarah Steele) to want the expensive things that Kate wants. There-s the marriage problem of sharing a partnership in parenting, business, and life with her husband Alex (Oliver Platt) but sensing doubt nibbling at the foundations. And there-s Kate-s free-floating 21st century malaise-the problem of how to live well and be a good person when poverty, homelessness, and sadness are always right outside the door. Plus, there-s the neighbors: cranky, elderly Andra (Ann Guilbert) and the two granddaughters who look after her (Rebecca Hall and Amanda Peet). As Kate, Alex, and Abby interact with the people next door, with each other, and with their New York surroundings, a complex mix of animosity, friendship, deception, guilt, and love plays out with both sharp humor and pathos. Please Give is writer/director Nicole Holofcener-s perceptive-and devastatingly funny-take on modern life-s contradictions, good intentions and shaky moral bearings.moreless
