5.0 out of 5 stars Best things come in little packages., September 22, 2009
This review is from: The Cake Eaters (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.
