Below is the trailer for Nicole Holofcener’s Please Give, which as usual for Holofcener, features Catherine Keener. It also stars Oliver Platt, Amanda Peet, and Rebecca Hall. It’s about a family waiting out an elderly woman’s death so that they can expand their apartment into a dream home. Things are complicated when they become friends with the family of the elderly woman. It also appears to be about white liberal guilt, too, and the fumbling of it.

The trailer looks pretty great. It’s the first feature project from the Lovely and Amazing writer/director since 2006’s Friends with Money. It opens in limited release on April 30th.
