Mostly Martha

Rating = B

Lots of the PR and critiques of this movie call it a comedy. But it's not, although there are smiles aplenty from it. It's the rather sad story of a women without a life outside her work at which she is supremely talented and how a young niece and a co-worker who are thrust on her eventually require her break out of her shell. The story is an old one, but it is well done. It is also done at a leisurely pace and without making everything explicit which I found pleasing. There are also lots of good looking food and realistic scenes of cooking.
