Cake Eaters – Movie Review
‘The Cake Eaters’ is a quirky, small town, ensemble drama that explores the lives of two interconnected families coming to terms with love in the face of loss.
“Cake Eaters is a lovely small drama about two interconnected families, but looks at love and loss and bereavement and sadness, and it does it in about 90 minutes with great acting, including Bruce Dern, who we don’t see often enough, Elizabeth Ashley, who is always playing Elizabeth Ashley, Kristen Stewart, who’s lovely, and a whole bunch of actors whose names and faces you probably won’t recognize, but whose work is wonderful, including Melissa Leo, who was nominated for an Oscar. This is one of those movies that really shouldn’t be missed. It will grab you in a way that you don’t expect, and will stay with you for a long period of time.”
