Katie nails it. Rebel child mending fences...
8 January 2006 | by twinklevangoSee all my reviews

Katie Holmes really captures the spirit of her character. April is a disillusioned, rebel child who is reaching out to her family on Thanksgiving Day. It is a time of family crisis due to her mother's illness, and April has invited them to her inner city tentament apartment for dinner.

The family crisis is reflected with a growing crisis April has after her oven breaks down and she must prevail upon strangers for help cooking her turkey. This takes the day through a lot of twists and turns. Will dinner be a disaster? You will have to watch it to find out.

Since I am the mother of a strong willed daughter around the same age, I loved this movie and related to the feelings of the mother and daughter. Katie really brought the story to life along with a great cast of other talented actors. Its a sweet, well written story worthy of notice.
