Adrienne Shelly's Waitress Hits The Top Five

Although it is playing in less than 500 theaters across the country, Adrienne Shelly's final film WAITRESS managed to hit the top five in the box office charts over the weekend. I usually try to not pay too much attention to box office results but I am very pleased to see WAITRESS doing so well amidst such typically heavy studio blockbuster franchises like SPIDERMAN, SHREK and PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN.
Hopefully Fox-Searchlight will continue to expand WAITRESS to even more theaters in the next few weeks so if it's not playing in your area now it should be soon.

Here is a lovely clip of Adrienne talking about her film, which she describes as a "love letter to my baby."
