For anyone reading this who has not seen Waitress (2007) – what are you waiting for? Funny, endearing, quirky…what more can I say? You’ll just have to see it for yourself.
Here’s the plot: Keri Russell plays Jenna, a waitress living in the American South, who is trapped in an unhappy marriage with the abusive Earl (Jeremy Sisto). She works at Joe’s Pie Diner, where her job includes creating inventive pies with unusual titles inspired by her life, such as the “Bad Baby Pie” she invents after her unwanted pregnancy is confirmed. Jenna longs to run away from her dismal marriage, and is slowly accumulating money to do so.
Watch it! Tonight! And then eat some pie!
