Virginia Film Society to Screen 'Peter and Vandy'

November 25, 2009

November 25, 2009 — The Virginia Film Society concludes its fall schedule with a screening of "Peter and Vandy" Dec. 2 at 7 p.m. at Vinegar Hill Theatre, 220 Market St. in Charlottesville.

The cinematic debut of writer and director Jay DiPietro, "Peter and Vandy" explores questions of shared experiences and diverging remembrances in a story of love with no beginning and no end. Switching back and forth in time, the film is a puzzle, reflecting what it means to fall in and out of love.

The film, which was launched at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, stars Jason Ritter, Jess Weixler, Jesse L. Martin, Tracie Thoms and Noah Bean. The film is based on DiPietro's 2002 off-Broadway play.
