Katie Holmes Posts a Throwback from 2003 and We Can't Get Over Her Bangs

'Tis the season for major Instagram throwbacks—for Katie Holmes, at least.

The actress, 41, recently shared a behind-the-scenes shot from the making of her 2003 film Pieces of April. Holmes captioned the cute snap, which features the film's cast surrounding what looks like a dinner table set for Thanksgiving, "I always think of filming PIECES OF APRIL this time of year... it was such a blessing to work with such a beautiful cast and crew...happy thanksgiving!!!!!"

Pieces of April is about quirky and rebellious April Burns (Holmes), who lives with her boyfriend in a low-rent New York City apartment miles away from her emotionally distant family. But when she discovers that her mother (Patricia Clarkson) has breast cancer, she invites the family to her place for Thanksgiving. While her father (Oliver Platt) struggles to drive her family into the city, April runs into kitchen trouble and must ask a neighbor (Sean Hayes) for help.

This isn't the first nostalgia-inducing photo Holmes has shared. Back in the spring, she posted a throwback pic of herself and her mom, Kathleen, in honor of Mother’s Day. In the sweet snap, we see the Dawson's Creek actress assisting her mother in the garden. Young Holmes dons a pair of yellow shorts and a white blouse, her hair styled in pigtails with colorful clips. Of course, it wasn’t long before friends and fans alike used the comments section to point out the obvious resemblance between the actress and her daughter (whom she shares with Tom Cruise). One fan wrote, "Wow, Suri is your mini," while another added, "Suri is your twin, beautiful like her mommy.”

Keep the throwbacks coming, please and thank you.
