Easy Kimbrough is the patriarch of the family and the local butcher. He is grieving over the recent loss of his wife, Ceci. He hides his secret ongoing affair. Beagle is his youngest son who was left to care for his ailing mother. He works in the local high school cafeteria by day but wants to paint street signs. Guy is the oldest son who has been away from the family for years while pursuing his rock star dreams. He learns of his mother's passing, but misses the funeral. When Guy returns home, the family begins to unravel. Beagle's pent up emotions connect with Georgia Kaminski, a terminally ill teenage girl wanting to experience love before it's too late. Easy's long time affair with Marg, Georgia's eccentric grandmother, is finally exposed to Beagle and Guy. Guy discovers that while he was gone, his high school sweetheart has started a family of her own. Through it all, the Kimbrough's and Kaminski's manage to establish a new beginning in the face of their greatest fears.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box.

WHERE WAS THE CAKE? STRANGE NAME FOR MOVIE TITLE. I LIKE BRUCE DERN EXCEPT FOR HIS ROLE IN TRUE GRIT.THE EVENTS OF THIS FAMILY COULD BE TRUE FOR MANY OF US.

I think Stewart was a believable character in this film. For some reason I like Twilight even though the acting is generally poor, but it seems like most of the actors/actresses in Twilight are good in other films... Agree the ending kind of trailed off but maybe that was what they were going for?

Nice movie with good acting. Kristen Stewart is supported with some veteran actors, namely, Bruce Dern and Elizabeth Ashley. A sick girl, Stewart, befriends a young fellow and they become good friends. The ending could have been more explained, but I understand why it ended the way it did. It was a short movie.

Delicate romantic drama centred on the interconnected lives of 2 families living in a small rural town. Just as in the "Twilight" series, Kristin Stewart exhibits her own unique brand of mute, vulnerable eroticism.

The cake eaters was a touching, romantic type of movie. Quite enjoyable.

I liked this movie - it was a bit creepy, but it was also sweet.
