Good Character-Driven Writing
14 July 2004 | by (Olathe, KS, USA) – See all my reviews

This is an ensemble story of the employees of a diner about ready to be closed. The reactions of the people are varied as are their individual stories. That's what makes this movie. I was interested in all of the people, even if I didn't completely understand their motivations and reactions. This is an exceptionally well-written story and well worth the time to watch it.

I enjoyed this movie, but the direction and pacing were slow. The editing contained a few too much stock footage. While a bit slow, the characters maintained my interest in the movie overall.

I like movies that aren't scripted "tight". We don't know all of the choices that all of the characters make in their lives after the credits roll. While that is a turn off to those weaned on Hollywood movies, I find that adds to the intrigue of a movie.

If you like character-driven movies as I do, this one is any enjoyable way to spend 90 minute. (Rating 8/10)
