From acclaimed filmmaker Nicole Holofcener comes a sharply observed comedy about a novelist (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) whose long standing marriage is suddenly upended when she overhears her husband (Tobias Menzies) give his honest reaction to her latest book. A film about trust, lies, and the things we say to the people we love most.
“Sisters from another mister. Cinematic alter egos. However you define it, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Nicole Holofcener have a connection that rivals the great movie partnerships of our time.” —Nicole Sperling, New York Times “Watching Nicole Holofcener’s new film YOU HURT MY FEELINGS…one begins to wonder why Julia Louis-Dreyfus hasn’t been starring in movies for decades… She has such fluid ease with the material, gracefully inhabiting Beth’s world with tic and idiosyncrasy.” —Richard Lawon, Vanity Fair “All right, I’m completely convinced. Nicole Holofcener can do no wrong. Each of the filmmaker’s features has been astute, witty, and incisive. YOU HURT MY FEELINGS, which she wrote and directed, and marks her second collaboration with the prodigiously talented Julia Louis-Dreyfus, is no different. In fact, it may be her best film yet — the most succinct, probing, charming, and thought-provoking of the bunch.” —Alex Saveliev, Film Threat “Holofcener and Louis-Dreyfus again make for perfectly pitched partners. Louis-Dreyfus is such a specific and thoughtfully controlled comedic actor, and while there are a great deal of small amusing moments…she’s also deeply affecting at showing the muted melancholy of someone wondering if they’ll ever be OK again.” —Benjamin Lee, The Guardian
