Holofcener's comedy of acceptances

This slight but lovely film from Nicole Holofcener (Friends With Money) offers testament to the range of its leading man, the late James Gandolfini.

Here, the former Tony Soprano shows us his softer side as gentle, schlubby divorcé Albert, whose shambling charm attracts bright but snippy fellow marriage-escapee Eva (Julia-Louis Dreyfus) at a party. As their halting, awkward, realistic romance blossoms, a small-world coincidence is waiting to blow it out of the water…

Though predictable, the third-act twist is forgivable thanks to Gandolfini and Dreyfus’ skills in an intelligent, tender and unflinching romance for grown-ups.

Featurette-centric extras are suitably short but sweet.
