    Meet the 2011 Sundance Filmmakers | "The Off Hours" Director Megan Griffiths

    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 Serbia...
