piecesofapril1.jpgWe watched Pieces of April the other night. This is a very good character-based indie film starring Katie Holmes and Patricia Clarkson (oscar-nominated role). Before you go off on Katie’s subsequent choices in a male partner and spiritual beliefs, check this film out. It is right in my “wheelhouse” with a cute punky female lead, a dysfunctional family, a road trip to NYC, and many uncomfortable holiday anxieties. Along with all that comes some very clever screenplay that makes you confront your own prejudices. All in a very good film…should be watched every Thanksgiving.
