Last night was a movie night. We went to Mark and Brigitte’s, ordered pizza from my favourite place here: Rimini and watched a movie. The flick of choice was Pieces of April which turned out to be really pleasant.

There was something very special about this movie, as it mainly revolved around a young woman who wants to cook a Thanksgiving dinner for her parents with whom she just can’t seem to get along.

Her cooking adventures, which pulled in the neighbors of her New York apartment complex, were really amusing. The film was highly stylized, done in a cinema verite style and appeared to be shot on digital video. Katie Holmes was also really good in this movie. It’s highly recommended!
