About the film:

A divorced and single parent, Eva (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) spends her days enjoying work as a masseuse but dreading her daughter's impending departure for college.  She meets Albert (James Gandolfini) - a sweet, funny and like-minded man also facing an empty nest.  This film is a sharp, insightful comedy that humorously explores the mess that often comes with getting involved again.

 

Footcandle Films: Ender Hijacking Thor

Science fiction. A well beloved film genre of Chris, who also loves to read (when he's not sitting in a darkened theater). How does he feel about the big budget adaptation of the bestseller "Ender's Game"? Alan, who looks at reading books like a plate of steamed broccoli, also gives his thoughts on the film. Shifting gears the gents then discuss another Somali pirate film – no it's not "Captain Phillips 2" but the highly regarded Danish film "A Hijacking". Movies news (featuring Alan's brief review of "Thor: The Dark World") and recommendations then serve as the icing on the cinematic film nerd cake that is this episode of Footcandle Films.

Recommendations – "American Psycho", "Flight"
