Pieces of April Reviews

    Kate Holmes is excellent! This is such a moving little indie film. I can relate to this film as far as having an estranged family growing up from the suburbs, having to be the scapegoat of the family and living in an opposite type of neighborhood. She was brave to invite her estrange family even with all the obstacles she had to endure with the preparations of dinner in the name of her Mother dying of cancer. It's the percect example of a Thanksgiving dinner with family imperfections.

    Katie did a good job & her mom. That's real life - with a good ending. I did that years ago.

    A funny and thoughtful little film. Actually it is so good that even Katie Holmes becomes lovable at the end of it.

    Pieces of April has an affectingly honest script and charming performances that make it a compelling calling-card from writer-director Peter Hedges.

    It's the pretty essential early 2000s low-budget Indie film with forced dysfunctional family drama and a rebellious woman at the front of it, but besides all that, there are very funny moments and it doesn't overly push its sentimental themes.

    Found this little gem of a movie streaming on Stan. Katie Holmes (pre-Tom) is just wonderful in this movie. Reminiscent of the series The Big C with Oliver Platt, I wonder if it was inspiration for it? It's now 13 years old and this film really deserves to be seen.
