Based on Steve Martin's best-selling novella, and starring Golden Globe(R) winner Claire Danes, Steve Martin, and Jason Schwartzman, SHOPGIRL is a disarmingly funny love story. Mirabelle, brilliantly played by Danes, is an aspiring artist working behind the glove counter at a Beverly Hills department store when she meets two very different men -- Jeremy (Schwartzman), a socially inept guy who doesn't seem to be going anywhere, and Ray (Martin) a wealthy entrepreneur who has the world at his feet. Filled with the mixed signals and missteps of a modern romance, SHOPGIRL is a fresh and witty, warm, and funny romantic comedy you can't help but fall in love with.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Shopgirl is precariously slight, but it has some intriguing moments, and Danes is luminous.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the movie includes several "artfully" rendered sex scenes (filtered light, close-ups of beautiful faces), a couple that are comic (one raunchy, with handcuffs and black lace underwear, another interrupted by a cat), and some sex jokes, visual (a men is spotted masturbating through a telescope) and verbal (concerning "performance" and "anxiety). The film also features repeated conversations about relationships, and there's some discussion of one lover being old enough to be a young woman's father). Characters discuss condoms and fellatio, smoke and drink, and rock band members do drugs and encourage groupies.
