Editorial Reviews

Twilight star Kristen Stewart, gives a tour de force performance as Georgia, a chronically ill teenager determined to experience love before it's too late. Georgia finds the hope she needs when she falls in love with Beagle, a frustrated street artist looking for inspiration. Directed by award winning actress Mary Stuart Masterson, The Cake Eaters is an intricately woven and powerfully poignant celebration of first love.

4.0 out of 5 stars life can be as sweet as you make it. April 21, 2009
Format:DVD
I wasn't really sure if I wanted to see this film; a Twilighter friend of mine ranted and raved that it was a must watch(although she was yet to see the movie, and knew little of the plot besides "Bella"(Kristen Stewart) was in it) but being the independent and existential film enthusiast that I am, I rented it with high expectations.

The Cake Eaters is a story about 16 year old Georgia(Kristen Stewart) who lives with Friedreich's Ataxia, a disease that she knows will kill her, if her overprotective mother doesn't drive her crazy first.

While spending time with her grandmother(Elizabeth Ashley) who is her one escape from her mother, she meets Beagle(Aaron Stanford) an older boy who works in her schools' cafeteria, and has plenty of problems of his own.

Beagle is still dealing with the recent loss of his mother, when his estranged brother Guy(Jayce Bartok) comes back into town dragging his crushed dreams of being a musician along with him. And not to mention, their father seems to be handling everything just a little too positively for Beagle to manage.

Of course Georgia and Beagle turn to each other, and with the other just might be able to get through their chaotic lives. That is until Georgia pushes the fact that she wants to lose her virginity to Beagle, and now!

The Cake Eaters is my updated version of A Walk to Remember. Girl has terminal disease, boy is still dealing with loss and ability to love... but this one is just a little less cookie-cutter and a little more sundance.(and a lot less romantic!)

I can't say this will be a favorite, and I don't know if Stewart's Twilight fan base will enjoy it(based on the film alone)...but it is solid, enjoyable, just maybe not quite as eye-opening as it could have been.

5.0 out of 5 stars Georgia on my mind August 31, 2009
By Nidkah
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Kristen stewart is magical in this film. Mary Stuart Masterson is the magic fairy in this film, Melissa Leo was marvelously seen on flashbacks but Bruce Dern is the one that tops the Cake. You will not recognize Aaron Stanford here, since he plays no X-man mutant, but a young imploding dutiful son.

The title of the film is explained in the director's commentary in case you are wondering. I won't spill it because you need to watch the film and be mesmerized by the beauty of Cake Eaters. Yes I said beautiful because there is no other way to qualify this film.

Such incredible, talented people gathered in this indie film will make you feel good about your own life. The message of the movie will leave you asking for seconds of this Cake.

Kristen Stewart's Georgia character is the best of her long career, her second being Melinda on the film Speak (also an indie film).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie April 14, 2009
Format:DVD
First, I love Kristen Stewart. Not because of Twilight, although I did enjoy the books and I did appreciate the movie. But lets be honest, Twilight was not one of the best written movies. You know it, I know it, and everyone else knows it.

Cake Eaters, however, was fantastic. Kristen Stewart plays a young girl, 16 i think, with a muscular disorder and she is curious about the opposite sex. She meets a young man who has just lost his mother and they instantly have an attraction.

There are a couple other side stories going on that are entertaining. All the stories share the same amount of screen time but my main interest was towards Kristen Stewart and Aaron Stanfords relationship. Bruce Dern did a fantastic job as well.

I would highly recommend this movie if you are a fan of Kristen Stewart. I would also recommend Into the Wild. I cannot wait for The Runaways, K-11, and Welcome to the Rileys to come out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best things come in little packages. September 22, 2009
Format:DVD
If this movie was overlooked at Oscar time we have critics that cannot see beyond their teenage years. Although I was drawn to this gem on the strength of Kristen Stewart's haunting and growing library of solid acting chops to date, enlarged deservedly by "Twilight," her range of work predicts an ascent to the heights of Streep with no reservations. This film is perfectly cast and exquisitely written as it explores the territory of generational love, as well as a Camille-like subplot of Kristen's terminal condition(not the story focus),and still delivers roundhouse performances from all the ensemble cast, particularly Bruce Dern and Elizabeth Ashley, two old studio veterans, that allows them to make up for their lengthy absences from the big screen. I have not seen a film cover such wide ground of emotions in so concise a manner so completely. Every character in this small, independent offering towers in courage before your eyes with fine shadings of flawed humanity and dignity. You will find yourself in this bitter-sweet offering in one of the characters and never forget what was so well unspoken long after each character had their say about the complexities of finding love in time. I can only explain the Oscar robbery as the Mona Lisa effect, cluttering the back room until it gets truly discovered by one with an eye for greatness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Redeemed July 27, 2009
Format:DVD
Kristen Stewart really redeemed herself for me in this film. I was not a fan of her in Twilight. I thought her acting lacked emotion. I didn't really know what to expect of this film but was pleasantly surprised. Kristin played a girl who suffered from a nueromuscular disease and did an excellent job. There were times in the movie when the transitions were weird and the plot was unrecognizable. I must say I was a bit disappointed with the ending because it left a some loose ends. Overall a good movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great acting from each cast member.
If you liked the Twilight movies then don't watch Cake Eaters, because Cake Eaters is a movie for grownups. (My apologies to the Twilight fans.)
