  • Even the film's missteps (the score, by Barrington Pheloung, is cringe-inducing) can't stop this meditation on love -- Martin calls it "Jane Austen for the twenty-first century" -- from melting into heartbreak. show more

  • This is a special film whose delicate tone ranges from tender to astringent, with occasional side trips into sweet. show more

  • A quiet, glistening love story - or not-quite-love story - adapted from Martin's novella of the same name, Shopgirl is such an atypical Hollywood affair that it's almost startling. show more

    I am not one to watch a movie twice... but Shopgirl was the acception! I have seen it twice and loved it the second time just as much as the first! It is romantic, quirky, predictable in an unpredictable kind of way.... I think the cast was phenominal and I loved every single charachter, especially Steve Martin! I did not really know who Claire Danes was until I saw this movie and I was very impressed with her role! I do not think this movie is for women only, I think a man can enjoy it just as much because it is about life, love and the reality of what happens in between!
