Storyline

NANCY, PLEASE tells the story of Paul Brawley, a gifted PhD candidate at Yale University. Paul has just moved into an apartment with his pragmatic girlfriend, Jen, and is struggling to complete his dissertation before embarking on a career in academia. There's just one snag: as Paul is unpacking his belongings, he discovers that something has been left behind. A seemingly inconsequential object, but one Paul feels is of great importance to his dissertation and, therefore, to his future: a battered, personally annotated hardcover copy of 'Little Dorrit' by Charles Dickens. He will have to retrieve it from his former roommate - the obstinate Nancy. As he becomes increasingly consumed with the retrieval of 'Little Dorrit', Paul's relationship and career unravel.

I Thought Maybe This Was a Filmography of a True Story?
21 August 2014 | by weasl-729-310682See all my reviews

I googled, but could not find much on this film. It feels like a true tale, but there' no evidence easily dredged up to support that feeling.

Maybe because I am such an old-school dog for justice, I really identified with the protagonist. I have been through some similar crap.

Today it is so easy for psychopaths to dominate everyone around them, because individual rights have been so diminished from when I was younger. Many laws such as noise ordinances are no longer, as a rule, enforced although they remain on the books so that the rich and powerful need not be annoyed. The irony is that in their neighborhoods, they very rarely have to deal with the rude intrusiveness of those who would violate the noise ordinance to begin with.

I can very much relate to Paul's lack of sympathy when he goes to the cops and from mostly everyone to whom he communicates. When you're right, you're right. SCREW popular opinion!

This is apparently a small film not seen by many at all. But it's definitely worth a watch if you like gripping movies that hold your attention until the end, which, incidentally, came out quite differently than I expected.
