THE OFF HOURS

DIRECTOR: MEGAN GRIFFITHS - WASHINGTON (SEATTLE)

(NAR) “In the languid world of the night shift at a highway diner in the Pacific Northwest, Francine’s small-town life consists of quickies in public restrooms and pouring coffee for truckers and townies. And the inertia isn’t limited to Francine; it extends to the diner owner, a short-order cook, a Serbian waitress, and Francine’s roommate. What they want is out of reach—or is it that they’ve lost track of wanting anything at all? When Oliver, a banker turned big-rig driver, becomes a diner regular, he sparks hope in Francine, introducing the possibility for change.”—Sundance Film Festival. “A reverse angle for a road movie, focusing not on the people passing through but on those who stay behind.”—Variety
