||Synopsis: At nearly 400 pounds, Tracy Orbison is a wide target. When he sets out to pursue his dream of acting, the grocery clerk finds an assortment of people waiting to dash his dreams: his acting coach, who has designs on his sister Peggy; his juvenile-delinquent friends, who suck him into their petty crimes; and his God-fearing, self-loathing mother. Through it all, Tracy remains irrepressibly upbeat, convinced he's destined for something big. Written by Framework Pictures

Awhile back I received in the mail a box, much larger than that which
would normally contain a DVD. Yet that is precisely what it was: a
DVDand a very imaginative press kit. There was a tin plate, a plastic
fork, and all sorts of candies shaped like hotdogs, hamburgers, etc. It
made me smile and think "how creative".
Well that is precisely the reaction I had to watching this sweet,
tender film. Eschewing the scatology that passes as wit in Hollywood
these days, HUMBLE PIE displays tremendous wit, compassion and
understanding about people. It also establishes the enormous presence
of hugely-talented young writer/star Hubbel Palmer, who stars as Tracy
Orbison, a gentle grocery clerk who dreams of achieving a higher
purpose in life.
Multiple failed driver's tests serve as a metaphor for the challenges
Tracy faces in his life. He has a strange home life with his eccentric
mother and mousy sister (her hobby is collecting stuffed animalssort
of a Laura character from THE GLASS MENAGERIE, except her frailty is
emotional, not physical). His well-meaning boss at the grocery store
(the always reliable Bruce McGill) is helpful, but only up to a point.
Tracy's friends sometimes let him down. His best efforts sometimes blow
up in his face. Through it all, however, Tracy maintains a sunny
disposition and a determination that is positively inspiring.
Thus the film follows Tracy's adventures as he struggles to achieve his
goals. His foray into drama is made positively hilarious by the
inspired casting of William Baldwin as his egotistical acting teacher.
I'm not a Billy Baldwin fan by any stretch of the imagination, so it
was positively delightful to be won over by his spot on performance as
an actor whose ego far exceeds his talent. Baldwin has the best line of
the film after watching Tracy play a bit part on television.
If the film has a weakness, in my opinion, it is that the story didn't
quite resolve as fully as I would've liked. When Tracy shares his
poetry with a colleague from the grocery store, her reaction is not
what I thought (and hoped) it would be. Of course, maybe that's the
whole point: life is like that, but Tracy is so gol-darned lovable that
I wanted a better payoff for him.
Another reason to see this film is to enjoy Kathleen Quinlan's
outstanding performance as Tracy's mother. Quinlan was pretty high
profile in the seventies before fading into semi-obscurity. Like so
many actresses, it seems she was brushed aside when she became a
certain age. This dismissive attitude towards women in particular and
talent in general, is one of Hollywood's biggest ongoing sins. Quinlan
is terrific. True, she was nominated for an Oscar for her work in
APOLLO 13 in 1994, but this lady should be much better known than she
HUMBLE PIE has its heart in the right place. You will love these
characters. Hubbel Palmer is the quintessential underdog. You'll be
rooting for him from the first scene.
