An audience hit at the Sundance Film Festival, Waitress serves up a sweet, sassy and delicious slice of life tale -- as it reveals the power of friendship, motherhood and the willingness to take a chance. It's the story of a small town woman who transforms her hopeless life into a hilarious and unexpected love story. This vibrantly different romantic comedy is the final film from writer-director Adrienne Shelly. Starring in the title role, Keri Russell (Mission: Impossible III) leads a dynamic cast as a diner waitress stuck in a lousy marriage whose only solace is baking out-of-this-world pies. When the awkwardly charming new OB-GYN, Dr. Pomatter (Nathan Fillion, Serenity), comes to town, she's inspired to mix-master her life into something far more satisfying. []

Waitress is a wee romantic charmer, a delectable Dixie screwball romp that never loses its spry sense of discovery.
