    Award-winning feminist flick shows at USC on June 22
     
    Chrissie and Liz
    BREAD AND BUTTER, an indie feature written, directed, produced and crewed by some amazing female SC alums (and a few quality men thrown in there), will be screening June 22 in SCA 112 at 7pm. A Q&A with Cast and Crew to follow moderated by fantastic SC Alum and Kick Ass Female Joanna Cherensky. 
     
    It's a private screening for SC current students, alums, staff and faculty - however, guests are allowed. The film has distribution and will be released late summer.
    ABOUT BREAD AND BUTTER

    After buying a used book that has personal scribblings throughout its margins, Amelia, a 30 year old virgin, becomes smitten with Leonard “the annotator”. At the same time, another man, Daniel, starts to court her. Confronted for the first time with the gauntlet that is dating, Amelia emerges from this anti-romantic comedy with the knowledge that finding herself is more important than finding a boyfriend.

    Bread and Butter had its world premiere at Woodstock Film Festival and is still traveling on the festival circuit. It has won several awards including Best Feature at Big Apple Film Festival, Best Romantic Comedy at Worldfest Houston and Best Comedy at SENE. It was picked as one of "three to see" at Cleveland International Film Festival by the festival's artistic director and was chosen to be a VIP screening at Phoenix Film Festival. A full listing of festival screenings can be found at the film's website (breadandbuttermovie.com).

    The film stars Christine Weatherup (Squaresville, Grey's Anatomy, Mad Men), Bobby Moynihan (SNL), Micah Hauptman (Parker, Everest), Eric Lange (The Bridge, Weeds, Once Upon A Time), Lauren Lapkus (Orange Is The New Black), Sean Wright (Just Seen It), Dawn Didawick (Hart of Dixie) and 3 Time Tony nominee Harry Groener (Buffy the Vampire Slayer).
