Spitfire Grill – Edited
After serving a five-year sentence for manslaughter, a young woman settles in a small Maine town and takes a job working for the feisty owner of the local grill. Forced to take on even more help after an accident, the owner turns to her nephew’s timid wife, and the three slowly develop an unlikely friendship which ultimately transforms the entire town.
I really enjoyed this movie. At first everything was mysterious and I wasn’t sure what was going on, but the story is that an old lady who runs The Spitfire Grill practically all alone lets this mysterious girl live with her and help her run the restaurant. At first the two don’t take the time to learn about eachother, and the whole town whispers about Percy behind her back. No one there trusts Percy because she is a newcomer and most of the people believe that she is nothing but trouble when they find out she had just gotten out of prison. Percy helps the old lady make her restaurant prosper and convinces her to enter it into a contest to sell it. Some bad things happen, and even though Percy had done nothing but help everyone the whole time she was there, they still blame her. The movie ends with a twist, and the whole thing was really touching and entertaining. I reccommend that everyone sees it.
