What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Enough Said follows the burgeoning relationship between a masseuse named Eva (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and Albert (James Gandolfini, in one of his final screen roles), who turns out to be the ex of a new client (Catherine Keener). While the movie is most likely to appeal to adults given the themes and stars, the content is generally teen friendly. There's some social drinking by adults, a bit of swearing (including one "f--k," plus "s--t," "crap," etc.), bare shoulders/backs seen during massage sessions, teens' discussion of losing their virginity -- and plenty of very realistic discussions about relationships.
  • Families can talk about the appeal of romantic comedies. How is Enough Said different from other romcoms you've seen? How is it similar?
  • Who do you think this movie is most intended to appeal to? How can you tell?
  • What do you think about the budding relationship between Eva and Albert? Do they seem like real people? How does Marianne's description of Albert differ from reality? How is it similar?
