Enough Said, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Gandolfini
Writer/director Nicole Holofcener has only made five movies since 1996 (including “Walking and Talking,” “Lovely and Amazing,” “Friends With Money,” and “Please Give”), but each is an insightful, smart, female-centric gem about modern human connections.

Press Conference TIFF 2013
If you are stuck having to watch all the Toronto International Film Festival action from the sidelines, fret not—another aspect of the festival will now come straight to your computer screen. The overlong, occasionally awkward press conferences that accompany each of the big films at TIFF have been uploaded to YouTube, so you can squirm in your seat while pretending to not play Candy Crush like the rest of the journalists in the room. This is literally hours of material, from big marquee titles like "Gravity," "12 Years a Slave," "Prisoners," "Labor Day," "Enough Said" and more. It's like you're there! Only not.

The one constant surprise about getting older is that the ongoing lesson you soon learn is that you'll never figure it all out. Whatever you seemed confident and sure about at twenty becomes more nuanced by thirty and by the time you're seeing forty on the horizon, what was important two decades ago may seem trivial now. In short, life doesn't keep you on a consistent learning curve, and continually changes the game and the rules, but lets all hope we have the heart and small wisdoms of Nicole Holofcener's "Enough Said" to carry us through.

Real plots, fully fleshed out characters, themes, subtext, actual emotion....these are things we've been craving as we endure the last gasp of the summer season. But luckily relief is around the corner and we're putting our hopes on the latest from one of our favorite (and somewhat undersung) filmmakers, Nicole Holofcener.

Taking some time off after 2010’s “Please Give” to bring her caustic hilarity to “Parks and Recreation” and “Enlightened,” it's not like Nicole Holofcener had swapped the big screen for the small permanently. She’s had a couple scripts in development for years, including a French remake and the crime drama “Every Secret Thing” (which “West of Memphis” director Amy Berg recently signed on to direct), but after casting news broke earlier this summer on her latest directorial effort, it appears the film has rounded out its line-up with two veteran actresses.

Earlier this year, documentarian Amy Berg ("Deliver Us From Evil") arrived at the Sundance Film Festival with mild controversy and lots of interest with "West of Memphis," a brand new documentary on the West Memphis Three with some startling new revelations. For better or worse, a lot of the attention came from Peter Jackson's involvement with the case and with the film as a producer. But for Berg's feature fiction narrative debut, she'll be standing all on her own with some pretty nice names supporting her as well.

Nicole Holofcener and Shari Springer Berman might make very different kinds of films, but they have at least one thing in common -- they both hate being in front of the camera. "If I wanted to be in front of the camera ..." Springer Berman started as Holofcener finished her thought for her, "you'd be Lena Dunham." "I didn't even want to take photos at my wedding," Springer Berman confessed. "I hate being photographed."
