‘Enough Said’

by Kaori Shoji

Julia Louis-Dreyfus has been a comedic icon on American TV for two decades or so — her presence on “Seinfeld” no doubt kept several thousand people from slitting their wrists. She is the other half of why “Enough Said” works, and the question is, what took her so long to make it to rom-com cinema?

This rare relationship story treats middle-aged single people like adults with issues going on besides age, sex and desperation. From the moment Albert and Eve are introduced at a party and they do this subtle, searching exchange with their eyes, you won’t stop smiling.
