Yeah, on second thought, maybe honesty isn’t always the best policy. Between the refreshingly human story, the talented cast of character actors, and Nicole Holofcener’s typically strong grasp of character, “You Hurt My Feelings” has the makings of being one of the year’s most quietly effective little dramas — in other words, precisely the kind of film for adults that we desperately need more of these days.
Written and directed by Holofcener, the film stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Seinfeld,” “Veep,” “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”) and Tobias Menzies (“Outlander,” “Game of Thrones,” “The Crown”) along with Michaela Watkins, Arian Moayed, Amber Tamblyn, David Cross, and Jeannie Berlin. “You Hurt My Feelings” comes from acclaimed indie studio A24, which should add a boost of prestige air to the proceedings, as well. Expect the film to hit theaters on May 26, 2023.
From acclaimed filmmaker Nicole Holofcener comes a sharply observed comedy about a novelist whose long standing marriage is suddenly upended when she overhears her husband give his honest reaction to her latest book. A film about trust, lies, and the things we say to the people we love most.
