Adrienne Shelly had written and directed several films before this sleeper-hit and she was unfortunately killed before it was released to such success. Keri Russell plays a small town pastry genius hoping to use her one skill to break free of a smothering marriage. Russell's fellow waitresses, her dead-pan boss and the charming new local doctor all congregate around her perfect desserts to discuss life and make attempts at living it. Just sweet enough, with more substance than you might expect.
