Shopgirl is an interesting portrayal of modern romance. In one case, a young man falls for Mirabelle just on a chance meeting in a laundromat. In another, an older man takes a methodical, and effective approach to win her affections, but is not so ready to reciprocate. It is a bittersweet look at love and relationships. Claire Danes and Steve Martin give excellent performances.
