Movie Info

In "The Off Hours" Francine is a waitress whose liberation from her mundane existence is long overdue. In the dreamlike and restless world of the night shift at a highway diner, Francine's life consists of casual encounters and transient friendships. What she wants is out of reach-or is it that she's lost track of wanting anything at all? When a banker turned big-rig driver becomes a regular, he sparks hope in Francine. As change begins to invade the quiet diner, Francine is reminded that it is never too late to become the person she was meant to be.

Audience Reviews for The Off Hours

Lost people in in a diner seemingly lost in time in a small town somewhere and somewhen in America. The performances are magnificently subtle and real. The setting evocative of places you almost think you've lived in. The characters so stuck in their lives that a hint of movement or change seems Herculean. Rachel Griffiths' first film is an understated Masterpiece.

Bland, film-schooly mosaic about a group of disparate people who all frequent the same lonely truck stop. An interesting premise is done in by flat characters and bland direction, ultimately leading nowhere.
