Enough Said will be the first film starring James Gandolfini since his recent death. The film also stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Catherine Keener, and Toni Collette and will be released on September 20.
Enough Said is a comedy about a divorced woman who decides to pursue the man she’s interested in, but learns he’s her new friend’s ex-husband. The film follows her struggles as she tries to juggle both relationships secretly. It is the last leading role for the late actor who made his name playing Tony Soprano in the mob inspired series, The Sopranos. Enough Said is produced by Nicole Holofcener and will debut at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
“He played a divorced dad who doted on his daughter and was crazy about Julia’s character,” said Holofcener. “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.”
Gandolfini passed away on June 19 from a heart attack while in Italy. While an actor for many years, he gained notoriety as playing Tony Soprano on the hit HBO series, The Sopranos.
