"Enough Said," a romantic comedy that features one of James Gandolfini's final performances, is drawing rave reviews after its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival earlier this month.

The film stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a divorced massage therapist whose new relationship with Albert (Gandolfini) becomes confused when she books his ex-wife (Catherine Keener) as a client.

Critics are applauding Gandolfini's "emotional" performance, a far cry from his iconic role as mob boss Tony Soprano on the HBO classic drama "The Sopranos."

"The performance suggests that the actor had greater range than his prior roles had allowed him to display or develop; to see him reveal such open, good-humored humanity in this film spurs pangs of emotion and sorrow for his passing at unpredictable moments throughout the film," The Hollywood Reporter wrote of Gandolfini's part.

"Warmth radiates from Gandolfini throughout the film's 91 minute running time," The Guardian reported.
"Despite the many jibes thrown his way by lovers and ex-lovers alike he never once shows even a glimpses of that temper we associate with Gandolfini's most famous character."

Gandolfini died June 19 of a massive heart attack while vacationing with his family in Italy. He was 51.

Many of his "Enough Said" co-stars were shocked and saddened by his death, most notably Dreyfus.


"Enough Said" hits the box office Wednesday.

Gandolfini's final film, the crime drama "Animal Rescue," premieres next year.
