REEL TASTY: DAMES DISCUSS FOOD IN FILM
Join us as we meet every six weeks to discuss a food-focused movie. Our host makes the selection, usually a fiction feature film, that is available to stream and leads the discussion. All Dames are welcome. Gail maintains a list of suitable films to aid the host in her selection. If you are interested in hosting or have any questions about Reel Tasty, contact Gail Forman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
FILM SELECTION: Big Night, Available on Amazon, Vudu, Google Plus, Kanopy
DATE: Monday, June 21
TIME: 7 p.m.
HOST: Michelle Douglas
Big Night, a comedy set in the 1950s, features an amazing ensemble cast, but the real stars are Stanley Tucci (who also co-wrote it), Tony Shalhoub, and the food. Two brothers, Primo and Secondo, are trying to run a restaurant serving real Italian cuisine but losing business to a competitor serving uninspired Americanized Italian food. When they get an opportunity to have Louis Prima make an appearance at their restaurant, they decide to gamble everything on one BIG NIGHT.
