    Tribeca Review: 'Nancy, Please' Showcases The Worst Nightmare Of The Timid Grad Student

    We've all known people like Nancy. The title character of Andrew Semans' "Nancy, Please" is a real pill, dark eyes, slumped shoulders, and an eternal pout. There's always drama in Nancy's life, and she's always expressing it physically. She's always impetuous, alway...

    The travails of the man child take an intriguing new direction in "Nancy, Please," the feature-length debut of writer-director Andrew Semans.
