BABETTE’S FEAST 1987 102 minutes
In the spirit of the Film Club’s series “641.5 Food on Film,” we are now able to present this adaptation of Isak Dinesen’s short story about two sisters in a desolate 19th century Danish fishing village. Devoted to their minister father, they turn away all romantic overtures, but take in Babette, a well-regarded chef who has fled the 1871 Siege of Paris. Years pass and when Babette comes into money that could take her home, she devises an elaborate thank you to the sisters who offered her sanctuary.
NOTE: Unlike previous screenings this year, there are no cautions required for this heartfelt G-rated film.
