Has there ever been a more cautionary tale about food and drink’s intoxicating power over our sense of reason?

BABETTE’S FEAST (U)
Director Gabriel Axel – 1987 – 102mins with English subtitles
Starring: Stephane Audran, Birgitte Federspiel, Bodil Kjer
Gastronomic wonders abound in this celebration of French cuisine’s eternal riches. A cook repays the Danish nuns who raised her by preparing them an outrageous feast. The lavish spread awakens the taste buds of those accustomed to more austere fare – and the film performed the same trick on Anglo-Saxon audiences, winning an Oscar and BAFTA.

Director Alexander Payne- 2004 – 126mins

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. As we close Film Feast Suffolk 2018 it’s time to celebrate food’s eternal (and often more enjoyable) bedfellow – drink!
Exclusive video introduction from the film’s writer/director, Alexander Payne
There will be a wine-tasting session prior to the start of the film in The Riverside foyer from our sponsor, Greywacke.
Screening preceded by CHICKEN OR THE EGG (Director Christine Kim & Elaine Wu, USA, 2013, 4mins)
