And, Action! Parkway North & Ladue Grads Behind New Film

'Welcome To Shirley' made its world debut Tuesday night.

Some young filmmakers with ties to the Creve Coeur area probably did what anyone in show business would love to do Tuesday night: celebrate a sold out crowd at a world premiere.

Welcome To Shirley, which, according to the film's website, "addresses and satirizes the quirkiness of the family unit, as well as the small-town environment, but on a deeper level it confronts complex ideas of bereavement, familial rivalry, and how hard it can be to stay together as things are falling apart," hit the big screen for the first time Tuesday at the in University City.

The film is the work of Joe Weil and Blake Lawrence ( graduates), and Paul Brick ( graduate), among others, and was shot and produced locally. KSDK's Heidi Glaus had a preview before showtime Tuesday.
