Movie Fact #151 - January 26th, 2021


The 2007 film Waitress was a sweet and endearing film about getting a second chance in love. Sadly, director/writer Adrienne Shelly was killed shortly after the film was completed, but her heart and soul was put into the film. Shelly had actually written the screenplay while she was pregnant with her daughter, Sophie. In fact, Shelly also co-starred in the film as the character Dawn (Pictured above). To make sure her work was not forgotten, Keri Russell was called in to record a director's commentary for the DVD in her place, recounting the on-set creative process and decisions that went into making the film. With that, Shelly's memory and love for her daughter lived on. Stay tuned!
