Lovely and Amazing, Friends with Money... Nicole Holofcener plays it close to the vest with her titles, like her newest, Please Give. She gives a little away when she joins Elvis.
Holofcener says she prefers films to theater, and discusses working with Catherine Keener, Mike Leigh, Hal Ashby and James Brooks. She talks about being fired by Woody Allen’s editor, Susan Morse, and that she sees herself as a ‘nice bossy’ director. While she reveals that her character in Please Give is somewhat autobiographical, she says the film began with the part of Rebecca (played by Rebecca Hall) because she writes character-driven films.
