Executive summary: Friends with Money

Certainly one of the smarter writer-directors to emerge in the 1990s, Nicole Holofcener has built a name for herself through her reinvention of the chick flick genre. Holofcener's characters struggle with real problems, and rarely if ever engage in group hugs. Her films Walking and Talking and Lovely & Amazing ought to be required viewing for all would-be auteurs, male and female.
