Beyond Books: A Film Fest of Food

In January, for our Thursday afternoon movie series, we will be showing a variety of films related to the theme of "food".  We will have two English language films, a Danish film and a documentary; a veritable smorgasbord for all.

On January 7th the film will be "Chocolat", starring Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench and Johnny Depp.  A woman and her daughter open a chocolate shop in a small French village that shakes up the rigid morality of the community.

On January 14th the film is "Babette's Feast" a Danish language film from 1987.  In 19th century Denmark, two adult sisters live in an isolated village with their father and although they can leave, they choose to stay with him.  Then Babette enters their lives and things begin to change.

On January 21st we will be showing the documentary "Sturgeon Queens".  Four generations of a Jewish immigrant family create Russ & Daughters, a Lower East Side lox and herring emporium that survives and thrives to this day.

Loathe at First Sight

"What, my dear Lady Disdain! are you yet living?"
-Benedick, Much Ado about Nothing, Act I, scene 1

Beatrice and Benedick. Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. Leia and Han. Swoon-worthy couples and romances for the ages, all of them, but what else do they have in common? At the beginning of their stories, each of these couples absolutely detested each other.

To be clear, I'm not referring to impersonal enmity, here-- these are (for the most part) not people placed at odds by warring nations, class conflicts, or clan feuds. (You'll note Romeo and Juliet didn't make this list-- they had family problems, sure, but they loved each other straight away). No, I'm talking about couples who pretty much do the opposite of "hitting it off" when they first meet. This is the classic "enemies-to-lovers" trope, and it's one of my personal favorites.
