Reviews
Mine: Weepy, kind of obvious, but still entertaining stuff. Ellen Burstyn is quite good.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Ex-convict Elliott arrives in the small, gossip-driven town of Gilead, Maine, and goes to work for Burstyn at the title-named restaurant, hoping to rebuild her life. Sincere, well-acted story goes awry toward the end with contrivance and melodrama; still, Elliott and Burstyn give memorable performances. Written by the director.
