As part of the "Signature Cinema" series, the screening is followed by a talkback with Betty Buckley, currently starring in the world premiere of Foote's play The Old Friends.
The talkback is moderated by The Old Friends director Michael Wilson.
"In the film, a broken-down, middle-aged country singer seeks to turn his life around through his relationship with a young widow and her son in rural Texas," press notes state.
"Signature Cinema" showcases films written by Signature's Playwrights-in-Residence and films that explore the "world of the play" that is currently in production.
The 2013-14 season at Signature Theatre consists entirely of plays receiving world or New York-premiere productions.
