WAITRESS

 

This small-town unhappily married waitress named Jenna, played by Keri Russell, and her two sassy girlfriends work at a diner, where Jenna bakes her stored-up energy into all kinds of pies that are named for her dreams and heartaches.

What makes this film work so well is the relationships that are the heart--which are brought to life beautifully by the great cast of characters.

The movie is funny, and then some, with stylized sets, great performances, and a warmhearted conviction that life's surprises aren't always rotten.

A don't miss.

It's been a while since I've seen a film as charming as this slice-of-life comedy/drama.

Waitress is as good as it gets -- a quirky movie with compelling dialog and characters you actually care about.

Keri Russell gives a terrific performance as the pie-making title character with more than her share of troubles. So sit down and have a slice.

The movie Waitress, starring Keri Russell, sparkles as a surrounded Southern pie-maker to the life inside her.who works in a home-town diner.

The story centers around her work family. She follows her happiness by creating new pies, each inspired by a different incident.

It turns out that the pies are sweeter than her life.

The film offers no easy resolution, but in the end what really matters is the picture of her awakening, in every sense,
