Lauryn Hill Returns To Big Screen In Indie Film

Imagine a film featuring R&B queen Lauryn Hill unable to find a distributor.

Well, that is the fate of "Restaurant," an indie film that features Hill's first big-screen appearance since her well-publicized cameo in "Sister Act 2."

Hill has a small but integral role in the film (which is about a group of waiters and waitresses that all work in a New Jersey restaurant) as Leslie, the ex-girlfriend of the film's star, Adrian Brody.

"Restaurant" is part of the Dockers Classically Independent Film Festival, which kicks off this weekend in New York and will hit Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Minneapolis this summer. Perhaps somewhere along the way, the film will find a distribution deal.
