I find this funny and affecting. This movie has a great way of show character development through visual shorthands that would otherwise read as, "twee" in any other movie. Uplifting without being schmaltzy.
4,5. Missing the other half because I didn't like some of the editing choices. Hardly matters. Incredibly happy I watched this little movie today. Russell, Fillion and Sisto are incredible - the rest is great too. An example of how a simple-enough romcom storyline can still have major strength through witty writing and charming performances. I loved it from the moment I heard the first weird pie name. RIP, Shelly.
I hope that someday, somebody wants to hold you for twenty minutes straight, and that’s all they do. They don’t pull away. They don’t look at your face. They don’t try to kiss you. All they do is wrap you up in their arms, without an ounce of selfishness in it.
It's a great romcom flick. It's refreshing to see a truly strong woman character in a romcom. A woman that has a voice, whose capable of stand on her own, not just waiting for some prince charming to save her. With its revealing climax—how the thing that initially burdens us can be the thing that actually sets us free—the movie ends strongly and cemented its status as one of the strongest female-driven movies ever.
Una película que simplemente no esperas que sea tan buena. Probablemente, ésta sea la mejor actuación de Keri Russell, quien da vida a una mujer compleja y tan deliciosa, que no puedes odiarla. Todos los personajes son muy buenos, creando un ensamble perfecto para esta historia en la que un diario y las recetas de varios pays dan el toque final. En una palabra: buenísima.
