New Movie: Waitress (2007)

Today's New York Times ran an interesting article in its Dining & Wine section about a new movie called WAITRESS, which opens nationwide May 2nd.

The film stars Keri Russell as a pregnant waitress who specializes in baking pies (27 kinds per day!) at a diner whose owner is played by Andy Griffith.

The film was written and directed by Adrienne Shelly, who also plays one of the waitresses; sadly, Ms. Shelly was murdered last fall by a construction worker.

I very much enjoyed Russell in the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie THE MAGIC OF ORDINARY DAYS. I'm not sure if WAITRESS will turn out to be my kind of movie, but given the focus on baking, it sounds promising.

A 3-star review is available from the Philadelphia Inquirer.
