"Enough Said" writer-director Nicole Holofcener is today's honoree in Indiewire's ongoing Awards Season Spotlight video interview series. Holofcener's lovely film, her fifth feature, stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus and the late James Gandolfini as divorcees who find a romantic spark, but not without some complicating (and hilariously bittersweet) factors. It's been getting awards buzz, for Best Film, Director, Screenplay and both Louis-Dreyfus and Gandolfini's performances, since its premiere on the fall festival circuit and September release.

Louis-Dreyfus told Indiewire that:

“I was a mammoth fan of every single one of Nicole’s previous films and very eager to work with her… Nicole was extremely collaborative. She was happy to dissect the psychological and emotional life of the character [of Eva in 'Enough Said'].”

Our 2010 TOH! video interview with Holofcener, on her previous film "Please Give," is here.


Holofcener on the importance of aspiring filmmakers writing what they know:


On Gandolfini's vulnerability as an actor, and his contributions to the film's dialogue:


On her favorite film topics (including first dates, awkward sex, and self-esteem about physical appearance):
