Join us on Tues., Dec. 19th at 7pm for a chocolate-themed gathering for the holiday as we watch:
A paean to joy and pleasure. Freethinking chocolatier Juliette Binoche arrives as a single mother in a backward French Village, a scandal all by itself. Adding to her rap sheet is the commotion she causes by encouraging pleasure beyond the limited imagination of the locals through her sensuous candies. The local power structure is none too pleased — politicians and church see their influence stomped on by a revolution of the senses. The canoodling becomes a joyous epidemic.
Starring: Johnny Depp, Dame Judi Dench, Lena Olin, Leslie Caron. Stealing the show as the arch villain mayor is the excellent Alfred Molina.
