Movie recommendation

The Hundred Foot Journey with Helen Mirren:  if you have a chance to see this movie, do so.  It's not fast paced, there are no car crashes or sexy goings on...just plain good acting, pretty scenery and a heartwarming story set in France.  It's taken from a book and produced by Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey.  It's a quality movie.  A friend and I went to see it tonight.  We usually go to the 4 o'clock movie.  This time of necessity we went to the 6:30 movie..a whole different crowd...nothing but pizza and popcorn surrounding us.

Maybe they were extra hungry because of the film. I saw an interview with Helen and she suggested making reservations at a good restaurant for after the movie.

It's true, Laura, the food was the focus and the movie hasn't had good reviews but at my age and stage of life, I don't see the need to go to movies where there is a lot of sloppy sex where I have to watch close-ups of people groping each other, or car crashes that make my ears ache, or science fiction where some strange and weird things are happening to people, it was a no stress movie that was pleasant and enjoyable. The food-fare at movies is mind-curdling but I can't eat dairy and I don't eat fast food stuff but I was surrounded by the smell of buttered popcorn which I know lots of folks enjoy. It's an enjoyable, no stress movie that is set in a fantasy that I can accept. The acting was good, it was a feel-good movie. Guess that's right up my alley, these days.

I went last Monday 4pm with 2 GF's. I loved it too.
Again, tired of the "F" word and sex scenes. Too loud, and too many previews of shootings and car chases.
I stopped on the was home, bought some extra-large eggs and made a cheese omelet for dinner for myself, as DH had a meeting. (There is a scene about omelets) Beautiful scenery, lovely movie.
Go if you get the chance.

Haven't quite finished the book (which I am enjoying) and will see the movie when I'm done.
I have loved all the french words even though I can't pronounce them.
