Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A divorced masseuse falls into a romance with a kindhearted empty nester, but starts to question their relationship based on the bitter ramblings of an unhappy client in this dramedy from writer/director Nicole Holofcener (Lovely & Amazing, Please Give). Eva (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) is the single mother of a teenage daughter who will soon be heading off to college. A successful masseuse, she rues the thought of an empty home when she crosses paths with the self-described slob Albert (James Gandolfini), a kind man in a similar situation. The blossoming relationship between Eva and Albert is starting to show real promise, too, until Eva's newest client Marianne (Catherine Keener), a successful poet, begins complaining about her ex-husband so intensely that her pessimism begins to rub off on the once-optimistic masseuse.
