Movie Preview: Waitress

Way back around Sundance time I told you about Waitress, a sweet little indie film about love and pie. It stars Keri Russell as diner waitress Jenna who bakes pies and gives them endearing names. Unhappily married, she tries to come to terms with her new-found pregnancy when a new man comes to town, turning her little ol' life upside down.

Waitress was directed by Adrienne Shelly who died tragically last November when she was murdered by a 19-year-old construction worker. Thus, the fact that Waitress is being applauded by critics is bittersweet — Shelly would have been so pleased. In her honor, Shelly's husband Andy Ostroy started The Adrienne Shelly Foundation which benefits female filmmakers. The movie opens in select cities this Wednesday May 2. Check out my review later this week, and for now you can watch the trailer if you

My hubby and I just saw this this weekend. It was really really good. I laughed so hard and then cried too. Of course, I love Keri Russell. I own the Felicity series and watched it religiously when it was still on the air. I think she is adorable and very likeable on screen.

This looks wonderful. Looking forward to reading your review, Buzz. Hope the movie is a box office success as a tribute to Adrienne Shelly.
