Shopgirl 2005


Based on Steve Martin's bestselling novella, "Shopgirl" is a funny and poignant story of love in the modern age. Mirabelle mans the glove counter at a high end department store in Beverly Hills, selling things that nobody buys anymore. An artist struggling to keep up with even the minimum payment on her credit card and student loans, she lives a quiet life and keeps to herself until a rich, handsome fiftysomething named Ray Porter sweeps her off her feet. Mirabelle revels in the attention, the sex, and especially, being in love, but somewhere, subconsciously, she realizes that the relationship cannot last. Soon, she has to make a decision: will she stick with Ray, hoping that his feelings for her might grow, or does she take a chance with Jeremy, a musician who may offer more? (read more)

Shopgirl Movie Review by Lloyd (8/2/2008)

Thank goodness for cable and thank goodness I pay for HBO and Encore, because on one of those channels I saw this movie recently. Hard to believe that this movie is based on steve martin's book which he read an excerpt from, when he was on johnny carson's show when the book came out.
This is a precious movie, sometimes...

while squirming in my seat, i tried to take some notes on this one which i thought would be helpful for fellow reviewers. shopgirl desperately wants to be something more than the best-selling steve martin novel from which it's based. sadly, it fails on so many different levels.

claire danes is usually a very good actress...

Shopgirl Movie Review by Filmkiller (4/11/2008)

Clearly Steve Martin was paying attention to the world around him as he passed through it. Based on his best-selling novella and written for the screen by him, Shopgirl plays out as if it were a reflection of fond memories and mistakes made, both accepted as a necessary part of life. An intensely personal piece of work by...

Shopgirl Movie Review by Movie Addict (10/20/2007)

Some compare this to Lost in Translation. I had to watch that film three times before I really enjoyed it. I can say that I enjoyed Steve Martin's story on the first viewing.

I actually tuned in to see if Jason Schwartzman was as obnoxious as I have seen him in other films. I was pleasantly surprised. I could not under...

Shopgirl Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/5/2007)

An odd little movie about a girl, Mirabelle Buttersfield (Claire Danes), who works in the gloves department of Saks Fifth Avenue in LA. The story starts out well enough, Mirabelle has an odd encounter with a strange young man, Jeremy (the incomparable Jason Schwartzman), who then sets out to find himself as a roadie. She...
