Big Night (1996)

Ep. 61

We just watched the wonderful film Big Night (1996), aka Two Brothers with a Restaurant and They’re Italian.

We discuss the impressive directorial decisions, the written & visual storytelling, and a final scene that is one of the best from any movie we’ve seen – food-related or otherwise. Plus drunken octogenarians, Italian Bilbos, and so much more.

17 – Julie & Julia (2009)

Sophie and Mitch watch 2009’s Julie & Julia, a movie about 2 women who were lost in life and found by food.

We talk about cookbooks, boeuf bourguignon, and the film’s ability to tell two different narratives as a single ‘biopic’. Not to mention how amazing Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, and Stanley Tucci are!
