Editorial Reviews

Jennifer Aniston, Catherine Keener, Frances McDormand and Joan Cusak star in a film the New York Times hails as "a bittersweet comedy about the drama of being alive..." -- Manohla Dargis/New York Times, FRIENDS WITH MONEY -- the story of four best friends whose comfortable lives are thrown off balance as the realities of early middle age set in. It paints a painfully hilarious portrait of modern life in the class-sensitive West side of Los Angeles. Written and directed by Nicole Holofcener (Lovely and Amazing), Friends With Money was the Opening Night Selection at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival and is being hailed as "Terrific" -- Kenneth Turan/Los Angeles Times, "Acutely perceptive and slyly quick-witted" -- Allison Benedikt/Chicago Tribune.

Contrary to what the previews and trailers would lead you to believe, Nicole Holofcener's third film "Friends with Money" is not a belly laugh riot. In fact, though much of its concerns are humorous, it deals with very serious topics much like those that she dealt with in her previous film "Lovely and Amazing" .

Once again we are in West Los Angeles among the upwardly mobile with money, Nannies, Housekeepers and men that tend to lawns and pools.

Holofcener, like her East coast counterpart Woody Allen, is part of the scene on which she chooses to comment: she is not an interloper, she is one of them. Holofcener lives and works on the Westside of Los Angeles but she's enough of an artist to step back and objectively survey, comment and analyze all that she sees.

"Friends with Money's" is mainly an Olivia (Jennifer Anniston) concern as she is the house cleaner with friends mostly married and mostly upscale. Jane (a complex and pissed off Frances McDormand), Christine (as a usually conflicted and badly married Catherine Keener) and Franny (a warm hearted Joan Cusack) who are all rich and concerned about Olivia: eager to have her settled down so that they can go on with their lives. All three are alternately self-absorbed, and oblivious to the world around them yet love Olivia enough to care about what happens to her.

At her most unglamorous , Anniston makes the most of her role as a woman who is at a loss to make a success of her life: she is both emotionally and socially frozen and her only outlet is her friends...in other words she is lucky to have Jane, Franny and Christine...all of whom support her both emotionally and monetarily.

Director Holofcener knows this milieu very well and this transfers to the screen as compassion and understanding.

Olivia (Jennifer Aniston) finds her friends, Franny (Joan Cusack), Christine (Catherine Keener) and Jane (Frances McDormand) are moving on without her. Franny stays at home with her two kids, while her husband (Greg Germann) works. Their relationship is good and their biggest decision is where they should make a large donation. Christine and her husband, David (Jason Isaacs) are screenwriters who work together, argue a lot and have decided to put a second floor extension on their house. Jane is a well-known fashion designer who loves her husband Aaron (Simon McBurney), who everyone thinks is gay. Olivia, on the other hand, cleans people's homes, having quit her job as a teacher at an exclusive school because the kids were making fun of her. She has trouble finding her place in life when all around her; everyone seems to be doing much better.

Nicole Holofcener's ("Lovely and Amazing") new film "Friends with Money" has some richly observed moments and some good laughs about adult friendship.

Olivia is Jennifer Aniston's best character since "The Good Girl". Unmotivated, slightly depressed and confused, Olivia clearly doesn't want a lot of pressure or obligation in her life, working as a maid in various people's homes. After she spends her day cleaning for others, she goes home and pines for the man she once loved, a married man who had an affair with her. Franny fixes her up with Mike (Scott Caan), her trainer, and they begin a relationship which doesn't seem to give Olivia a lot of joy.

As we watch Olivia wade through her pot-hazed life, Aniston portrays why this woman would feel this way, giving us a rich portrayal of a woman who doesn't do much. But we get why she would begin a relationship with Mike. We get why she calls her ex-boyfriend every night and hangs up.

Format: DVD
When Olivia (Jennifer Aniston) goes out to dinner with her three long-time best friends, Franny (Joan Cusack), Jane (Frances McDormand) and Christine (Catherine Keener), it always seems as though she's a bit of a fish out of water. Olivia is the only one that is single and lacks enough money and financial security to make her life really comfortable.

Her friends sort of know that she is constantly strapped for cash and that she now works as a maid, cleaning the houses of the wealthy Westsiders after she left her career as a schoolteacher because she just "couldn't handle it any more."

In Friends With Money, the wonderful new movie written and directed by Nicole Holofcener not much happens to Olivia but it doesn't matter because she - as well as well as her friends - are so well defined, funny and interesting. Does the amount of money you have really lead to happiness? Although, Olivier's yuppie friends are rich and the quality of their marriages differ, are their situations that different from Olivier's?

While Christine (Keener) and her husband and writing partner David (Jason Isaacs) spar over home renovations, fashion designer Jane (McDormand) has stopped washing her hair and seems to be going through some kind of forties mid-life crisis, wondering whether this is all there is. She spews hate at other drivers and at store managers, but her anger is often aimed at her sexually ambivalent husband Aaron (Simon McBurney) who seems to prefer the company of men to her.

The bourgeois comforts of Christine's career success appear to be breaking apart: is it a coincidence that David's petty insults about her weight gain and the neighbours' chilly reaction to their view-blocking annex escalate at the same time?
