Watched 'Waitress' off Cinemax. Nice offbeat indy story, occasionally drifts into 'too twee' but has a few moments of transcendent giddiness. Keri Russell is great.

Overall, I'd say it was a worthwhile experience, memorable and smile-inducing even, though it still has this 'adopted from off-broadway' lack of completeness to it.

I will say, try to avoid too much info about this before viewing [and it's not about a plot twist], if you must know what I'm referring to, it's spoilerized in white below




The writer of the screenplay, who plays a loveable and central character in the film, was murdered mid-post-production, by an illegal immigrant construction worker when she caught him stealing her purse. After killing her, he hung her up to make it look like a suicide, which is what her family thought until the investigation progressed.
