I really liked this movie!

Waitress is about a woman in a small town who's life pretty much sucks in every way, except for the friendship of her two best friends. Keri Russell does a great job embodying a complex woman in the this funny but not frilly dramatic comedy. I wish she got more roles like this because she was definitely in her element. A huge part of the success of Waitress belongs to Adrienne Shelly, the writer-director-actress, who died shortly after this film was made. There are some nice bonus features on the DVD that pay tribute Shelley and the memorial foundation set in her name that supports women filmmakers. You can check it out at
