James Gandolfini Film ‘Enough Said’ Gets Release Date
Enough Said, the second-to-last movie the late James Gandolfini worked on, will be released this September, announced Fox Searchlight Pictures.
Gandolfini stars as a divorced father in the film who adores his young daughter. He ultimatley falls for Julia Louis Dreyfus’s character, who happens to have just developed a friendship with his ex-wife, played by Elizabeth Keener. Toni Collette and Melisaa’s McCarthy’s husband Ben Falcone also star.
"[Gandolfini] didn't believe he could play a romantic lead, even though everyone on the set thought he was sexy and hilarious,” writer/director Nicole Holofcener told The Hollywood Reporter. “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."
Collette also recently spoke admiringly of Gandolfini’s turn in the film. Best known for playing mob boss Tony Soprano on the hit HBO series, he was able to show a softer side in Enough Said. "I'm so excited for his fans to be able to see him in Enough Said, because he's a total teddy bear in it,” the Australian actress told Cinema Blend. “He's the leading man. He's sought after, loved, talked about, and I just feel so lucky to have gotten to work with him."
Enough Said will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival on Sept. 20. Animal Rescue, the other film project Gandolfini completed before his untimely death, has yet to get a release date.
Gandolfini died of a sudden heart attack while vacationing in Italy on June 19 at the age of 51.
