THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY (PG)

Director Lasse Hallström – 2014 – 122mins
Starring: Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal, Charlotte Le Bon

As we see on our TV’s on a regular basis, cooking on a professional basis is both a stressful and competitive business. Occasionally it descends into downright nastiness and all out war. And so it is here, albeit to comedic effect, as upstart Indian immigrants open a restaurant the titular one hundred feet from snooty Michelin starred restaurant Le Saule Pleurer whose proprietor Madame Mallory (Mirren) is less than enthralled.

7:30pm – Ipswich Film Theatre

SIDEWAYS (15)

Director Alexander Payne – 2004 – 127mins
Starring: Paul Giamatti, Thomas Haden Church, Virginia Madsen, Sandra Oh

The widely admired, Oscar-winning comedy famously set Merlot sales tumbling (and boosted those of Pinot Noir) based on its lead character’s acidly aired wine reviews. So without further ado lets celebrate food’s eternal (and often more enjoyable) bedfellow – drink!

There will be a free wine-tasting in the foyer before the screening and the film features an exclusive Film Feast video introduction from the film’s writer/director, Alexander Payne.

Treat provided by the East of England Co-op


Tickets

Tickets: £7.50 (Adult), £4.00 (25 or under, or Mature Student)

7:30pm – Woodbridge Library

WHEN HARRY MET SALLY (15)

Director Rob Reiner – 1989 – 96mins
Starring: Meg Ryan, Billy Crystal, Carrie Fisher, Bruno Kirby

Rob Reiner’s classic and classy rom-com requires little introduction. Whilst food does play an integral part in proceedings, the film is forever enshrined in cinema history for THAT scene in Katz’s Delicatessen when Sally convinces Harry (and every male who’s ever watched it for that matter) that a lady most definitely can fake it. The late great screenwriter, Nora Ephron, was well known for not only writing this film and JULIE AND JULIA, but also as a best-selling food writer.

Food inspired by the film will be available in the library from Woodbridge’s The Cooks Shed following the screening.

Treat provided by the East of England Co-op


Tickets

Film Only: £6.00
