In The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat, three Indiana teens — nicknamed the Supremes by the owner of their favorite hang in the hometown they never leave — bond in 1967 and are still tight decades on, after life has taken a sizable bite out of each of them. Sure, tales of longtime BFFs overflow many a nightstand. But in his kindhearted debut, Moore (can it be called chick lit if a man wrote it?) shows a seasoned ease with his funny, damaged subjects, including the tipsy ghost of Eleanor Roosevelt. You’ll be casting the movie by the second chapter. B+
