Presented by The Brattle and the American Repertory Theatre

Special Introduction by ART Staff!

(2007) dir Adrienne Shelly w/Keri Russell, Nathan Fillion, Cheryl Hines, Jeremy Sisto, Andy Griffith, Adrienne Shelly [108 min; 35mm]
In celebration of the ART’s new Broadway-bound musical, we present this special screening of the charming film upon which it is based. Written and directed by beloved indie actress, Adrienne Shelly (Trust, The Unbelievable Truth), WAITRESS tells the story of a smalltown waitress – and certified pie genius – who longs to escape her abusive marriage and struggles with her feelings about her newly discovered pregnancy. A romantic comedy unlike any other, WAITRESS deals not with a search for true love but rather with the quest for one’s true place in the world.
