When I watched her film Walking and Talking, at the Angelika Film Center in New York, almost 10 years ago, I was totally impressed with the simplicity of the story and the perfect tone. Nicole Holofcener is definitively one of my favourite directors. I am a film producer, and I would love to produce a film directed by her. As simple as that. Here, with Lovely & Amazing, she did it again. It's just perfect. The film has a wonderful balance, a subtle pace, a connection with reality that is quite unusual and difficult to find. Her characters don't talk all the time, but they listen, and so do we, the audience. Lovely & Amazing is a film that totally meets its name: it is absolutely lovely and amazing to watch.
