Walking and Talking
Amelia and Laura have been best friends since the sixth grade. For the first time, their lives are taking different paths: Laura is in love and planning her wedding, while Amelia begins to despair that she'll ever find the right man.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

This movie from the mid-nineties feels like a relic of its bygone era, given that the plot hinges on VHS rental stores, answering machines, newspaper classifieds, and of all things, a rotary phone. It's a pleasure through and through, the kind of indie comedy that you watch with a smile the whole time, featuring maybe the nicest and most sympathetic character Catherine Keener has ever played. Writer-director Nicole Holofcener's ear for dialogue and compassion for regular people are evident even at this early stage of her career.
