A photo from "Enough Said," one of the last movies James Gandolfini starred in, has been released.

The actor, who died June 19 at the age of 51 from a heart attack, stars in the Nicole Holofcener film about mid-life romance opposite Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

The film is slated to make its debut at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival, but the movie's first still is out. The picture shows the pair slyly flirting with each other. 

In a statement after Gandolfini's death, director Holofcener revealed that the actor didn't think he made a believable romantic lead: "He played a divorced dad who doted on his daughter and was crazy about Julia's character. He didn't believe he could play a romantic lead, even though everyone on the set thought he was sexy and hilarious. He was charming and self-effacing and incredibly talented."

Holofcener continued, "Not only did he pull off playing a leading man, his performance is subtle and moving and very, very lovely."  The film is set to open in select theaters on September 20.
