Movie Info

NANCY, PLEASE tells the story of Paul Brawley (Will Rogers), a young, gifted, aimless PhD candidate at Yale University. Paul has just moved into an apartment with his pragmatic girlfriend Jen (Rebecca Lawrence), 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 copy of 'Little Dorrit' by Charles Dickens. He will have to retrieve it from his former roommate - the obstinate, casually sinister Nancy (Eléonore Hendricks). Paul contacts Nancy, but she will not cooperate. She blithely thwarts Paul's clumsy and increasingly frantic efforts to retrieve his book. Caught between an impatient girlfriend and an equally impatient thesis advisor, Paul starts to lose his grip. His life will get much, much worse before it gets better. (c) Official Facebook

  • This subtly engrossing psychological thriller plays like an intellectual version of Fatal Attraction, minus the sex and the dead bunny. And that's meant as a compliment.

  • Overly one-note in its singular p.o.v., the pic nevertheless offers a welcome variation on the conquering frat boy or Ferris Bueller-type adolescent.

  • Not all of Nancy, Please feels quite successful, but there's a gleeful glint of menace unspooling throughout most of the film's running time.

  • ... 95 minutes of the same dilemma over and over again.
