Please Give Written and Directed by Nicole Holofcener

To me a new film from writer/director Nicole Holofcener is a reason to rejoice. One reason is because she unapologetically tells stories from a female perspective. But one would be remiss and quite frankly an idiot to paint her work with the chick flick brush just because her film's are told from a female point of view.
