Movie Preview: Kristen Stewart in The Cake Eaters

Long before she was Bella Swan, Kristen Stewart was cast in Mary Stuart Masterson's directorial debut, The Cake Eaters, as a terminally ill teenager named Georgia Kaminski determined to experience love at least once in her life. There seems to be a variety of relationships explored in the story, which focuses mainly on two families that are "brought together by the return of one family's son — a reunion that conjures up old ghosts and issues that must be addressed." Recent Oscar nominee Melissa Leo also stars.

I wasn't exactly won over by the trailer, but then I looked up some of the reviews for The Cake Eaters and they're mostly glowing. The New York Times's Stephen Holden notes that "superior acting elevates a small, overcrowded ensemble piece set in rural upstate New York into something a little deeper and truer than the mawkish disease-of-the-week movie it threatens to become." Mary Stuart Masterson's direction is also praised in several reviews, which only adds to my curiosity about this little film.

The Cake Eaters screened at Tribeca Film Festival two years ago and just got an extremely limited release last Friday. Now it'll be out on DVD next Tuesday, March 24. To check out the trailer,

I saw this movie at a film festival in Philadelphia last fall. I didn't have very high expectations of it. When I read the synopsis about it online before going it sounded like it might be corny and predictable, but I was pleasantly surprised.
