Watched Shopgirl last night. Steve Martin's novella is definitly better than his screenplay directed by Anand Tucker. The film just went sort of slow, and Martin's novella is written with such a wonderful tone that the film cannot echo.
I commend Martin because I think this story really has an excellent lesson about loving a whole person, not just part of a person.
The film is excellently cast...no one else could do as well as Jason Schwartzman at playing the part of Jeremy. Claire Danes also does a wonderful job. (I don't think I've seen Danes in any thing since Igby Goes Down)
