'Enough Said' Trailer Released: James Gandolfini's Final Comedy Looks Warm, Smart and Funny

The trailer has been released for Enough Said; a rom-com that will bear a more potent poignancy for those who were fans of the late James Gandolfini, star of The Sopranos. The actor died in June after an unexpected heart attack, whilst on holiday in Rome, but his death didn't mean he couldn't keep entertaining post-humously.

Watch The Enough Said Trailer:

Directed by Nicole Holofcener (Friends With Money, Please Give), Enough Said will stars Gandolfini alongside Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep, Curb Your Enthusiasm) in a romantic comedy about Eva: a divorced, single mother who's not looking forward to her daughter moving away to college. She meets Albert (Gandolfini), a happy, teddy bear of a guy who has a complicated relationship with his ex-wife. The pair hit it off but masseuse Eva doesn't realise that her friend and client Marianne (Catherine Keener) is Albert's ex-wife until she overhears a voicemail.

Marianne tells Eva souring details about Albert and sub-consciously influences her actions as Eva and Albert's friendship grows stronger. Eva's view of Albert becomes clouded by his ex-wife: will she get to know him in his own right? Or will he find out that his new squeeze and ex have been colluding?

Enough Said was an official selection at the Toronto Film Festival where it made its debut. Aside from Gandolfini and Louis-Drefus' undeniable chemistry, there are also memorable performances from Toni Collette (The Sixth Sense, Little Miss Sunshine) and Catherine Keener (The 40-Year-Old Virgin). The movie will be a near-perfect send off for James Gandolfini who made his name playing hard gangster Tony Soprano - we get to see more of his sensitive side in Enough Said.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, director Holofcener spoke of the actor's initial reservations towards playing a warm and fuzzy character: "He played a divorced dad who doted on his daughter and was crazy about Julia's character. He didn't believe he could play a romantic lead, even though everyone on the set thought he was sexy and hilarious. He was charming and self-effacing and incredibly talented. Not only did he pull off playing a leading man, his performance is subtle and moving and very, very lovely."

Enough Said will hit theatres on limited release from September 20th 2013
