Percy, upon being released from prison, goes to the small town of Gillead, to find a place where she can start over again. She is taken in by Hannah, to help out at her place, the Spitfire Grill. Percy brings change to the small town, stirring resentment and fear in some, and growth in others. Written by

"The Spitfire Grill" has got to be among the most moving films I have ever seen. It shows that there is always a chance for redemption, no matter how grueling or nefarious your past was. The acting was so dexterous, and the characters were very well developed. Rather than passing judgment over Percy for being incarcerated, the movie conveys a genuine compassion for her and makes an effort to expose her lovable, affectionate side. I felt I could identify with her, because I know what it's like to be judged, condemned, and ostracized. The ending almost brought me to tears, and it's difficult for a movie to do that. Certainly deserves a 10 out of 10.
