The Linguini Incident (Director’s Cut)

Director Richard Shepard in person for Q&A after the screening on May 23rd only!

Lucy (Rosanna Arquette) is a under-paid, under-appreciated waitress at a terminally hip NYC restaurant called Dali. She’s also an aspiring escape artist desperately in need of cash to buy Harry Houdini’s wedding ring. Monte (David Bowie) is the shady but charming new bartender who desperately needs to get married at any cost. Together they join forces— along with Lucy’s best friend, the self-defense bra designing Viv (Eszter Balint)— to rob the popular restaurant, and all the “trend-sucking leeches” who dine there. As one might expect, it doesn’t go as planned, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Funny, romantic and wonderfully odd, the cult classic THE LINGUINI INCIDENT, co-starring Andre Gregory, Buck Henry and Marlee Matlin, is “an off the wall treat,” according to the LA Times. “A contemporary screwball comedy that actually works.”

Starring Rosanna Arquette, David Bowie, Eszter Balint, Andre Gregory, Buck Henry and Marlee Matlin. Written by Tamar Brott & Richard Shepard. Produced by Sarah Jackson. Directed by Richard Shepard.
