Trailer For ‘The Off Hour’, A Film by Megan Griffiths

Posted by at 12:24 pm on April 4, 2011

In The Off Hours, Amy Seimetz (TINY FURNITURE) alluringly commands the screen as Francine, a waitress whose liberation from her mundane existence is long overdue.  In the dreamlike and restless world of the night shift at a highway diner, Francine’s life consists of casual encounters and transient friendships.   What she wants is out of reach-or is it that she’s lost track of wanting anything at all? When a banker turned big-rig driver (BAGHEAD’s Ross Partridge) becomes a regular, he sparks hope in Francine.  As change begins to invade the quiet diner, Francine is reminded that it is never too late to become the person she was meant to be.

Writer/director Megan Griffiths draws complex characters and stays true to them, respecting their shortcomings and yearnings for connection.  The all-star indie cast of THE OFF HOURS is rounded out by Lynn Shelton (HUMPDAY), Scoot McNairy (MONSTERS), Tony Doupe (CRIMES OF THE PAST), Bret Roberts (THE VIOLENT KIND) and newcomer Gergana Mellin.
