5.0 out of 5 stars Cake Eaters DVD 28 Oct 2010
Format:DVD
This sensitive film, Cake Eaters, the directorial debut of Mary Stuart Masterson, is a gently told story of disability and how it affects families and individuals. A young teenage girl with a degenrative disease, wants to experience all life has to offer and has the normal feelings and emotions of any teenage girl. This is the story of how she takes control of her awakening sexuality, and makes a stand for her own independence, and the effect it has on those around her.

There are many fine performances in this well crafted film but that of Kristin Stewart stands out, and she is truly remarkable. I cannot recommend this film highly enough, funny, sad, quite often disturbing and sometimes very hard to watch, yet it fills ones heart with hope and a real belief in how indomitable human spirit can be.

4.0 out of 5 stars A hidden unexpected gem 8 Jan 2011
Format:DVD
This 2007 indie movie would have vanished without trace were it not for the fact that the new it girl du jour, Kristen Stewart, is in it. She is featured as Georgia, a young girl with Friedreich's Ataxia, a rare disease for which there is currently no cure. The main symptoms are those of apparently being drunk, ie one slurs, stumbles and falls, and tragically the illness spells an early death and zero social life.

Set in rural America, the story centres around Georgia's determination to live a proper life and get a decent bite from life's apple. To this end, she press-gangs a local boy, Beagle, into sleeping with her.

But 'The Cake Eaters' is so much more than a young romance. To me, in its own modest, quiet way, the film was an insight into the struggles, triumphs and mysteries of life itself.

Also, K Stew's performance was stunning. At first, especially seeing her lacklustre stint in 'New moon' and 'Eclipse', she appeared almost vapid, and not trying. However, her quiet and compelling performance here grows on you. For that matter, so do her gorgeous, elfin looks.

By the way: in spite of the title, there is no reference to the eating of cakes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously moving film 14 May 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film surprised and amazed me, it is very moving and yes it did reduce me to tears in some places, probably some of the very best acting that I have ever seen particularly Kristen Stewart's portrayal of the disabled lead character.
I have never seen such a moving perfectly balanced depiction of a disabled person by an able bodied actor Kristen Stewart is definitely an actor worth watching in my opinion.
Well written, sensitively directed and superbly acted this film is definitely worth watching and is a fine addition to my permanent collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its just ok.
She played the part excellently but I thought the storyline wasnt great. the credits started rolling and i sat staring at the Tv waiting for the rest of the film. Pretty pointless.
