Waitress (2007)

()

Comedy, Drama, Romance |

Waitress is a American comedy-drama film written and directed by Adrienne Shelly, whose supporting role serves as her final film appearance before her death. It stars Keri Russell as a young woman trapped in a small town, an abusive marriage, and a dead-end job, who faces an unwanted pregnancy. The film debuted at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival and went into limited theatrical release in the US on May 2, 2007.

Jenna Hunterson is a waitress living in the American South, trapped in an unhappy marriage with her controlling and abusive husband, Earl. She works in Joe’s Pie Diner, where her job includes creating inventive pies with unusual titles inspired by her life, such as the “Bad Baby Pie” she invents after her unwanted pregnancy is confirmed. When the receptionist at the doctor’s office notices her disappointment, she mentions Jenna can have the pregnancy “taken care of” in a city about two hours away; she decides to keep the baby nonetheless.

Jenna longs to run away from her dismal marriage and is slowly accumulating money to do so. She pins her hopes for escape on a pie contest in a nearby town, which offers a $25,000 grand prize, but her husband won’t let her go. Upon learning she is pregnant, he demands she promise never to love the baby more than him.
