Quotes

Beagle: So what's wrong with you anyway?
Georgia: I have Frederick's Ataxia. It's a neuromuscular disease.
Beagle: Is that why you talk kind of like you're drunk?
Georgia: I do?
Beagle: I mean, um, you, it, just slurred a little...
Georgia: No, I get it all the time
Beagle: I just didn't know. I didn't know anything about it. I didn't mean to offend you
Georgia: No, you didn't. It's a genetic disorder of some kind.
Beagle: Are you gonna get better?
Georgia: No, this is pretty much as good as it's gonna get until my heart gives out. I don't know when that's going to be.

A beautiful "feel good" movie
16 April 2009 | by sum123See all my reviews

It's been a while since I watched a movie and felt good for a while afterwards. Most movies nowadays make you feel romantic, awesome, thrilled, pumped up, etc etc, while you're watching it, inside the movie theatre or on your couch; but as soon as the movie ends, many leave you with a strange feeling of emptiness. "The Cake Eaters" was definitely a different experience for me. I can't say that I've learnt a lesson or a piece of wisdom from the movie, but I can definitely say that it left me with a good feeling after it ended. I definitely recommend it for rental and ownership, especially to watch with a loved one.
