I'm not entirely sure how it will play to a large audience, but it might have enough charm and wit, with a dash of complicated romance, to keep one entertained.

Claire Danes has a gravitas and grace to her that hearkens back to starlets of the 1930s and '40s.

Rather than being a labeled a romantic comedy, Shopgirl is more of a coming-of-age drama

It's L.A. as it is today, brooding, at times thoughtful, frustrating, and populated by souls like and completely unlike Mirabelle Buttersfield.

Desperta no espectador um sentimento de agradável melancolia, como aquele que experimentamos quando ouvimos uma melodia triste da qual gostamos muito.

This movie nails some of the truths about the L.A. dating scene that most other movies don't go near.

Un film qui a tous les éléments à la bonne place et dans lequel Martin propose à nouveau un mélange élégant d'une formule qu'il connaît par c%u0153ur.

threatens to turn into the latest update of 'Pretty Woman' (but) an inescapable undercurrent of sadness flows through the movie and through its characters, which gives 'Shopgirl' a wistful, often downright bluesy tone.

Shopgirl is Steve Martin at his most philosophical. This romantic comedy is not like the usual Hollywood fare, but is an exploration of loneliness, isolation, expectations and reality. A bittersweet lovestory for thinkers.

The new movie, "Shopgirl," isn't nearly as slight as it sounds. It isn't a comedy, it isn't a "chick-flick," and it certainly isn't about shopping.

Watching [Dane], you think other actresses look half-alive at best. You even forget for a while that other actresses exist.

Shopgirl stands out as an elegant work, one that provides a welcome look at love, romance, and heartbreak without the encumbrances of the usual Hollywood folderol.

A slim, charming, romantic story, full of intentionally mild humor about strong themes -- passion, commitment, loneliness.

Where Elizabethtown pretends to have the meaning of life, Shopgirl hones in on a few telling details, then allows audiences to fill in the rest.
