I picked this movie yesterday knowing little about it and it was also a freebie.

I love character studies especially if they build momentum into drama - this one has a bit of comedy too.   This film had a good story base and the acting was GREAT by everybody.  It was not very long; less than 90 minutes.

I thoroughly enjoyed this 2003 movie that was heavily laden with great actresses and actors.

 

Pieces of April

 

Katie Holmes

Patricia Clarkson

Oliver Platt

Derek Duke

Alison Pill

Sean Haynes

Alice Drummond

And a whole lot more . . . . . .

 

The story centers around a quirky, rebellious daughter from a semi-dysfunctional family who lives in a low rent district apartment in NYC - she invites the whole family from the suburbs for ( her 1st ever cooking ) Thanksgiving.

 

A little sad but also very uplifting in a quirky way. 

Highly recommend it to those who like this sort of film; where the action is in the characters and the life-oriented story line.

 

Does anybody remember seeing it ?  A lot was going on in my life in 2003 so I guess it got by me back then.
