April Burns (Katie Holmes) has never been on good terms with her mother, Joy (Patricia Clarkson), but in a burst of goodwill she's volunteered to host her family for Thanksgiving at the Lower East Side apartment she shares with her boyfriend, Bobby (Derek Luke).

As if preparing a holiday feast isn't pressure enough, she discovers her oven is broken and has to search her building for one that works, making appeals to an eclectic array of neighbors. Pieces of April is a funny and poignant look at a day in the life of a family striving to create new memories while making peace with the old. From the screenwriter of What's Eating Gilbert Grape? and About a Boy, Peter Hedges, who also directs.
