LIKE WATER FOR CHOCOLATE - An epoch film for Mexican movie-making, LIKE WATER creates its own intense world of passion, longing, magical realism, and glorious food. Set in a Mexican border town circa 1910, a young couple, Tita and Pedro, are deeply in love. But they are forbidden to marry, as Tita is designated to remain a spinster and care for her mother. So Pedro weds Tita's sister to stay close to Tita and her magical cooking. 1992 - 113 minutes - Rated R - subtitled
The film will be followed by a hosted discussion with Chef Melinda Lucas & George Lewis of the BIMA Bistro.
