A couple run a business selling furniture they have purchased from the families of deceased people. At the same time they have purchased the adjoining apartment to theirs which currently is occupied by an elderly woman and they are patiently waiting for her to pass on so that they can extend their home and create a master bedroom.
The husband of the couple, Oliver Platt, sails through life with equanimity but his wife, Catherine Keener is troubled and seeks to compensate by offering assistance to those in need without achieving satisfaction.
'Please Give' is quirky and so low key that I nodded off at times. The humour is very dry and did appeal to me but would not be to everyone's taste.
