Walking and Talking
First screened in Winter 1999 / Most recently screened in August 2009
Director: Nicole Holofcener. Cast: Catherine Keener, Anne Heche, Todd Field, Liev Schreiber, Kevin Corrigan, Randall Batinkoff, Lawrence Holofcener, Lynn Cohen, Vincent Pastore, Joseph Siravo, Allison Janney, Alice Drummond, Rafael Alvarez. Screenplay: Nicole Holofcener.

Twitter Capsule: Holofcener's debut remains not just her high-water mark but a peak in recent cinema's grasp of female rapport.

VOR:   Kind of debut that makes you cross every finger for the makers' futures. Honest, women-authored films about women are still unicorns, especially comedies.
