Opening Night Film: Waitress
Directed By: Adrienne Shelly
Writer/director/actress Adrienne Shelly was in Aspen in 2000 with I’ll Take You There, a film which won our Best Director award. We’ve been anxiously awaiting her follow-up, and this one delivers on the promise, revealing a talent that has continued to grow and mature within the medium.
Tragically, we lost Adrienne this past November, just as her film had been accepted by Sundance. It played to rapt audiences in Park City, and was immediately acquired by Fox Searchlight. We are proud to present Waitress as this years opening film. We love this film, and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
