Morning Movie

Thursday, January 8th at 9:30 AM

Starring Academy Award winner, Helen Mirren, and produced by Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey, and Juliet Blake, this uplifting film bursts with flavor, passion, and heart. When the chilly chef proprietress of a Michelin-starred French restaurant in southern France (Helen Mirren) gets wind of a culinary immigrant opening an Indian restaurant just 100 feet from her own, her icy protests escalate to all-out war between the two establishments. It’s a celebration of triumph over exile as these two worlds collide and one young man tries to find the comfort of home in every pot—wherever he may be. Run time is 122 minutes. The coffee is hot at 9:00! Please call 798-3881 to sign up.
