Brief Movie Recommendation: Waitress (full review forthcoming)

There hasn't been a lot out at the theater lately, but I was bored a few days ago and did go see the limited release sleeper hit Waitress.

Waitress stars the surprisingly talented Keri Russell, the always impressive Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Serenity, Drive), Cheryl Hines, Jeremy Sisto (from the short-lived TV show Kidnapped), Eddie Jemsion (Ocean's 11/12/13), and the legendary and frighteningly shaky-handed Andy Griffith.

A full review is forthcoming in the next day or two, but since this movie is in limited release (it's only at one theater in the Greensboro/Winston-Salem/High Point, NC area), I thought I'd just give a very brief and definitive recommendation before it goes away...

Thumbs up. Four out of five stars. A-. Just a few flaws; otherwise, witty with a lot of charm and a decent amount of laughs.

More about it later...
