Atlanta Jewish Film Festival – Last Week at Ed’s
February 23 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Lawrence Kasdan, screenwriter of blockbuster films such as Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Force Awakens and Solo, directs this fly-on-the-wall passion project with his wife and fellow Oscar nominee Meg Kasdan. For years, Lawrence and Meg Kasdan were customers at a 60 year-old diner in West Hollywood called Ed’s Coffee Shop. When Ada, the diner’s manager and daughter of its original owners, announced that she was closing the place, her large circle of regulars was crushed. “Last Week At Ed’s” is a film the Kasdans made about the final days of the diner, its eccentric characters, and the depth of feeling a beloved business can generate in a close-knit community. There will be a Q&A session with Lawrence and Meg Kasdan after the screening.
