Kate (Katherine Keener) has a lot on her mind. There’s the ethics problem of buying furniture on the cheap at estate sales and marking it up at her trendy Manhattan store. There’s the materialism problem of not wanting her teenage daughter (Sarah Steele) to want the expensive things that Kate wants. There’s the marriage problem of sharing a partnership in parenting, business, and life with her husband Alex (Oliver Platt) but sensing doubt nibbling at the foundations. And there’s Kate’s free-floating 21st century malaise-the problem of how to live well and be a good person when poverty, homelessness, and sadness are always right outside the door. PLEASE GIVE is writer/director Nicole Holofcener’s perceptive-and devastatingly funny-take on modern life’s contradictions, good intentionsand shaky moral bearings.
