You Hurt My Feelings
Director/Writer: Nicole Holofcener
Cast: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tobias Menzies, David Cross, Amber Tamblyn
Beth (Louis-Dreyfus), a popular writer, and her husband Don, a well-liked teacher, share the kind of relationship that truly, seriously, for the love of God cannot be real: that is, they’re actually in love. Even after decades of marriage, parenting, and their own successful careers, their physical spark has somehow not diminished; in fact, they seem to relish the opportunity to share a single ice cream cone and drive others – including their son, Charlie – mad. Should it come as a surprise then that his own marriage is in crisis?
But when Beth discovers that Don has been untruthful to her about his opinion of her work for years – Beth’s world comes crashing down. Has their whole relationship been one Big Fat Lie?
A singular comedic talent, Nicole Holofcener wades into the murky, potentially treacherous waters of modern morality. In this nuanced, fun and ever-relatable take on relationships and family dynamics, we’ll join our two New York muses, Beth and Don, as we come to terms with one of life’s essential questions: is telling the truth overrated?
