April is a family black sheep living with her boyfriend Bobby in a New York City dump. She decides to invite her parents and siblings over to her apartment for Thanksgiving diner. Bobby goes on an odyssey for a nice suit to impress the family; April is on an odyssey to cook a nice dinner in a Manhattan walk-up without a functioning stove; and family is on an odyssey from their nice home in suburbia into the big city.
This is a small, sweet, affecting film that cost $300,000.00 to make. Katie Holmes as April and Patricia Clarkson as her mother Joy both give excellent performances. Also starring Derek Luke as Bobby, Oliver Platt as dad, and featuring Sean Hayes as one of April's many interesting neighbors.
Here's a review from New York Magazine:
