Mystic Pizza (1988)

Encouraging proof that small budgets and unknown actors can sometimes produce big hits through word of mouth, this is a warm and inviting look into the lives of three appealing young women who work as waitresses in a pizza parlour in Mystic, Connecticut.

Too old for dolls and too young for marriage, they’re all on the threshold of leaving behind their teenage girlhood and on the verge of responsibility, commitment, and leaving home.

Julia Roberts is Daisy, the gorgeous, brassy, sexy one – on the verge of becoming the town tramp until she meets a rich preppie. Annabeth Gish is her naive but brainy sister, Kat – on her way to Yale until she falls for a married architect.

But it is really pint-sized Lili Taylor who will steal your heart as energetic JoJo, indecisive on the eve of her wedding.
