Jenna is unhappily married, squirreling away money, and hoping to win a pie-baking contest so, with the prize money, she'll have enough cash to leave her husband Earl. She finds herself pregnant, which throws her plans awry. She bakes phenomenal pies at Joe's diner, listens to old Joe's wisdom, tolerates her sour boss Cal, is friends with Dawn and Becky (her fellow waitresses), and finds a mutual attraction with the new doctor in town. As the pregnancy advances, life with Earl seems less tolerable, a way out less clear, and the affair with the doctor complicated by his marriage. What options does a waitress have?Written by
When Jenna goes to get her first ultrasound she is wearing a pale sky blue button-down shirt. But after the ultrasound, when she is in the doctors office, her shirt is a periwinkle blue, closely resembling a light lavender blue and does not appear to have buttons, but a V-shaped collar, but you can only see the full shirt very briefly at the beginning when they are both sitting in his office. Then, immediately after, when she's walking on the street, her shirt changes back to a pale sky blue color, but the buttons are harder to see. And when she's seated at the bus stop the buttons are very prominent and the color is slightly different. The color changes could be do to lighting, but more than likely they are different shirts.

I was addicted to saying things and having them matter to someone.

I just returned from seeing this delightful film at the Harkins Camelview 5 in Scottsdale, AZ. I was so excited to see it. And my anticipation was well worth the wait. This is a tiny, little story with a big heart shaped pie.
From the moment the story started I was totally absorbed. The writing is so smart, and so funny. Throughout the film my heart laughed and ached with longing. Each actor was perfectly attuned to their character. And it was so wonderful to see Andy Griffith on the big screen.
I am sorry to say that I had not heard of Adrienne Shelly until this film. But from this film alone, I can see what a remarkable writer, director, and actress she was.
If you enjoy slice-of-life stories and pie, this is the film for you.
