I can’t believe this movie slipped past me.
“Pieces of April” is astounding. I mean it. If you like movies like “Garden State” and “Lost in Translation”, you will like this movie, regardless of how you feel about Katie Holmes. Peter Hedges wrote and directed; he also wrote “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” and “About a Boy”.
I am so glad that I pay attention to trailers, because nine times out of ten, I end up liking the ones I see before movies that really blow me away. The trailer for “Pieces of April” was a bit precious, so I figured I was taking a chance on it when adding it to my Netflix queue, but as it turns out the trailer was just edited that way.
This is a great film to see just before Thanksgiving, too, because it’s about a Thanksgiving dinner. Go, rent, watch!
