This review is taken from an earlier post.

Adrienne Shelly wrote, directed and starred in this quirky little southern tale about a pregnant woman trapped in an unhappy marriage, all while working in a pie shop. The lady’s two best friends, played by Cheryl Hines and Adrienne Shelly, bring comic relief to her sad tale. The film stars Keri Russell as the pie maker and Nathan Fillion as her obstetrician (best known for his role as Capt. Mal Reynolds in “Firefly”). What is great about Shelly’s writing is that she doesn’t end it the way you assume any Hollywood big-budget film would have ended it. Instead, it is introspective and hauntingly honest. This movie is just sweet as pie.
