CHOCOLAT (2000)
6:00 P.M.

Featuring Chocolate Inspired Delicacies

PG13 | 2 hours 1 minute (Romance/Comedy)

When mysterious Vianne and her child arrive in a tranquil French town in the winter of 1959, no one could have imagined the impact that she and her spirited daughter would have on the community stubbornly rooted in tradition. She opens an unusual chocolate shop where her ability to perceive her customers' desires and satisfy them with just the right confection coaxes the villagers to abandon themselves to temptation -- just as Lent begins.
The moral argument may be pat and predictable, but the movie disarms you with its charm and its solid craftsmanship...However familiar, the taste is still sweet, the texture light as a soufflé, the sentiments pleasantly high caloric."

Jenna (Keri Russell) works in a diner in a small Southern town and is a genius at creating luscious desserts, but her marriage to an overbearing lout (Jeremy Sisto) makes happiness impossible. When she discovers she is pregnant, she makes plans to skip town before her condition is obvious. However, she begins an affair with the new town doctor (Nathan Fillion), who is the only one who knows her secret.
"Waitress deserves an essay, not just a review. There are perfect moments that stand out, and the reasons for their perfection are interesting."

"A feast for the eye and a tug at the heart -- that is writer/director George Tillman Jr.s' new film, Soul Food."
