The Cake Eaters

The tagline for this movie is “Life can be as sweet as you make it”, which is fitting.  The story is about two families in a small town.  The main character, Georgia, is 15 and terminally disabled (played by Kristen Stewart of Twilight fame.  She meets Beagle, the 20 year old son of the butcher.  Beagle’s mother has just passed away and his older brother, Guy, has  returned home after three years.Needless to say, the  relationship between the brothers and their father is awkward.  And for an added twist, their father has been having an affair with Georgia’s grandmother.  This quirky, indie film explores imperfect people & relationships and it was simple & sweet.
