Saturday, May 7, 2011, 7pm - 9pm

Kate and Alex live in New York City with their teenage daughter Abby. Having just purchased the apartment adjacent to them, they discover that its tenant, the cranky and elderly Andra, is only willing to move out when she dies.  

"Nicole Holofcener, who writes the most interesting female characters in the movies, delivers another dazzling role to Catherine Keener." - Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel 

"Please Give is a moral comedy that feels at times like one of the late Eric Rohmer's deceptively breezy miniatures, or a mid-period Woody Allen movie minus the fussiness." - Ty Burr, Boston Globe
