Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: An engagingly high-strung comedy about lack of empathy and the gnawing guilt that can attend it.

Audience Reviews

4 stars

A deceivingly simple dramedy that's packs enough subtle, emotional complexity for multiple films. "Please Give" is a flawlessly acted showcase for one of the sweetest screenplays in recent memory. How do you NOT like this movie?
