I have been looking forward to seeing the movie Waitress for quite a while now. It was a bit different than I was expecting but I really did enjoy it. Independents have a different kind of narrative. They seem to experiment with the storytelling a bit more. I like seeing the different perspective.
We also recently saw Catch and Release. I had a bit of trouble getting oriented during the first 1/3 of the film. But about half way through I was starting to relate to it. I had the distinct impression that this film was written and directed by a woman (which was correct).
Both were good little films, probably in the chick-flick category, but I recommend them anyhow. They do represent real females and real perspectives. I very much enjoy authentic characters.
