...Waitress (2007)

Waitress is a slight film that received the bulk of its media coverage because of the untimely death of its writer/director/actor Adrienne Shelly. The script uses ridiculous character motivations to move the story forward and the film is composed with static, mundane shots and stage bound editing. It reminded me of a mash-up of Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore and Baby Boom with none of the realism of the former and none of the charm of the latter.
