Years ago, I used to go to the movies all the time. I also reviewed them for a Women's Center newsletter. But in all honesty... I haven't been to a movie in the past two years. There has been nothing I have deemed worthwhile seeing. That is until this weekend. A movie opened that I adore. To understand why, you have to know, a while back... I started reading a book that captured my imagination called THE HUNDRED FOOT JOURNEY by RICHARD C. MORAIS. It was made into this movie by Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey starring actress Helen Mirren. It is about a family from
opening a restaurant in the mountains of , after tragedy strikes them.
not dissuaded by the fact that across the street, a mere hundred feet
opposite their restaurant, stands a renowned French eatery. BUT after a few run-ins with it's proprietress, Madame Mallory, the family realize they may be
in over their heads, with their latest venture. It's a story that shows how cultures clash, and highlights a young
cook's journey to becoming a celebrated chef. It was delightful, charming and a
must see for Foodies. If you haven't been to the movies in a while, this one is
worth the price of admission. France
