The Reel Food Film Festival … Week Two!

Today at 2:00 PM we’ll be continuing our Reel Food Film Festival, six weeks of films having something to do with food! Due to our licensing agreements, we can’t tell you the actual title, but we can tell you this:

“A new chocolate shop in a small French village becomes a battleground between the free-spirited shopkeeper (Juliette Binoche) and the town’s uptight mayor (Alfred Molina). The script takes some liberties with Joanne Harris’s novel, but the result is a heartwarming great-spirited parable of love and tolerance—a luscious candy box in its own right made all the sweeter by its topflight cast.” Rated PG-13, 121 minutes.

A What’s Falmouth Reading? Committee program celebrating good food.

There will be popcorn and chocolate!

Afternoon update:

What I learned at the film showing of CHOCOLAT today ... Joanne Harris has now written a trilogy of books, which began with CHOCOLAT!

The Girl with No Shadow (2007)
Vianne moves to Paris and sets a chocolaterie on a small Montmartre street under a new identity--that of widow Yanne Charbonneau. Then Zozie de l’Alba enters the lives of Vianne/Yanne and her two daughters.

Peaches for Father Franic (2012)
Vianne returns to Lansquenet, summoned back by a friend who is seeking to smooth tensions between the Christian community and new Muslim immigrants, comes face to face with nemesis Fr. Francis Reynaud, the focus of much of the immigrants’ resentment.
