You give me my time back!
Well, if you needed a reason not to think it's almost impossible for me to like a movie, I'm afraid I won't give you one right now.
Please Give is a failure. It raises some questions, yes. But that's not that hard, is it? It has no depth, its wit is limited if not mostly absent and any good idea there is in Miss Holofcener's mind that needs to get to us, just loses its way resulting in awkward scenes.
There is always something that doesn't work and it's kind of frustrating to feel that "this" or "that" could have had an impact if handled more carefully.
Rebecca Hall gives an excellent performance but she deserved a much better film.
It's sad, because the film belongs to a genre that I really admire.
5/10 (almost a 4/10)
