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

Critic Reviews for Nancy, Please

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (7)

A darkly comic psychodrama about academic pressure and irrational paranoia.

May 23, 2013 | Rating: 5/5

Nancy, Please hasn't much to offer beyond the amusing spectacle of a complacent college boy losing his cool. But that may be enough, especially for those who've sparred with archrivals of their own -- real or invented.

May 23, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The acting is disciplined (particularly impressive in that the characters are uniformly unsympathetic) and the timing is carefully worked out with regards to Paul's slow-motion breakdown.

The travails of the man child take an intriguing new direction in Nancy, Please.

Top Critic

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.

May 23, 2013 | Full Review…

A twisted, mordant comedy about writer's block spiraling down into complete self-destruction.
