PIECES OF APRIL

PIECES OF APRIL

Sometimes, you don't know anything about a movie. You've never seen commercials for it, it's never played at any theater in your neighborhood, and no one has ever said, "Hey, this is a really good movie. You should watch it." Sometimes, you're just at the video store, and they don't have the movie you went there to rent, and now you're staring at the box for "Pieces of April". The description really doesn't tell you much, and so you take a chance.

I'm really glad I took that chance with this movie. This little independent film is much better and funnier than you would gather from the description. It was unexpectedly good. Patricia Clarkson, who plays the mother, received an Oscar nomination for this role
.

It also makes for a great Thanksgiving Day Movie.

Rent.

Eat popcorn .... turkey .... whatever.

Enjoy.
