Movie Review: The Dish & The Spoon (2012)

The Dish & The Spoon movie posterThe Dish & The Spoon (2012) - Directed by Alison Bagnall; Written by Bagnall, Andrew Lewis, Olly Alexander and Greta Gerwig; Starring Oily Alexander, Greta Gerwig, Eleonore Hendricks, Amy Seimetz, Adam Rothenberg.

By Kenny Howell

I have previously stated my love for all things Greta Gerwig (To Rome With Love), so that drove me to this little indie.

It is the story of Rose (Gerwig) a woman trying to deal with her husband's affair. She meets an English teenager played by Olly Alexander (God Help the Girl) who came to the U.S. to meet a girl face to face that he met on the internet. They share an oddball road adventure of sorts until she finally confronts the other woman and her husband.

All things considered, this is a pretty forgettable indie drama, but it is worth watching if you are in the mood for such a thing. Or if you just want to see Gerwig do her thing, which is usually elevate material.

Rating: **1/2
