RESTAURANT (2000) *** Adrien Brody, Elise Neal, David Moscow,Simon Baker-Denny, Catherine Kellner, Malcom Jamal Warner, John Carroll Lynch, Jesse L. Martin, Sybil Temchen, Vonte Sweet, Lauryn Hill. Brody gives a great performance as a struggling playwright who works in a trendy Hoboken eatery as a bartender and is trying to juggle a new promising relationship with waitress/singer wanna be Neal (equally good) while coming to terms with his ex (pop superstar Hill) as well as living his life with his co-workers, each with their own charming eccentricities.
Novice filmmaker Eric Bross and screenwriter Tom Cudworth combine to make a memorable little gem of a film with funny, adroit dialogue and its strong message of racism underplayed without pandering to the audience.
