Julia Roberts puts in a star-making performance in a sweet coming-of-ager

Total Film has dined in the very Connecticut eaterie that sparked this pleasing coming-of-ager and can attest to the homespun charm that inspired Amy Jones to use it as the nexus for her winning story of small-town life and love.

Sadly, none of the staff there could hold a candle to the young Julia Roberts, whose role as a waitress with big dreams and an even bigger heart set her on the road to Pretty Woman superstardom.

Annabeth Gish and Lili Taylor have her back in Donald Petrie’s chick-flick, which also features an early appearance from Matt Damon in his first credited role.
