My Dinner with Andre is a passionate, volatile and humorous encounter between two friends who have not seen each other for a long time, and decide to catch up on each others' lives over dinner.
André Gregory (The Last Temptation of Christ, The Bonfire of the Vanities) is an intense, highly experimental theatre director and playwright in search of life's meanings and spiritual revelations. His friend, Wally Shawn (Wallace Shawn, Ally Mc Beal, Toy Story), is an actor and playwright living in New York who is more preoccupied with the search for his next meal. As André recounts his global journeys involving esoteric theatrical experiments and mystical adventures, Wally listens with more skepticism, as his attitudes shift through wonder, puzzlement, admiration, and anger. What finally emerges is a sensitive portrait of a friendship that survives and transcends beliefs of love, death, art, and man's continuing quest for self-fulfillment.
