Kate: "Call me Ishmael."
Narrator: Who just finished Moby Dick.
Kate: My favorite books right now are Twilight and Survival in Auschwitz. Before that I was in to Huckleberry Finn; not because I live on the Mississippi, but because fundamentalists want to ban it.

A Superb, Endearing, Charming Film -- A Better "Mystic Pizza"
25 May 2012 | by jsteigerSee all my reviews

This delightful little indie film focuses on a group of teenagers (and one adult) running a tiny fast food operation in the middle of a small town in Iowa.

The main protagonist, Kate, is turning 16 today and has never been kissed.

Keenly intelligent, independent-minded, wholesomely attractive with a good set of values, she's everything most parents could wish for in a 16 year old daughter.

Beautifully photographed and edited, well cast and charmingly acted, this film surpasses almost anything big-studio Hollywood has made in recent years dealing with the topic of coming of age and romance.

It manages to succeed at doing this without any of the blatantly contrived and self-conscious plot manipulations that characterize most attempts at the genre.

In its emotional range and choice of topics, this film will strike many as a light-hearted, and in most ways superior alternative to "Mystic Pizza."
