Like Water For Chocolate [R]

Wednesday, May 5 - 7:00 PM

Greatly reduced capacity for this event.

Winner of over 10 international awards including Best Picture-Ariel Award, Best Actress-Tokyo Film Festival, and Best Screenplay – Chicago International Film Festival.

The youngest daughter in her family, the beautiful Tita (Lumi Cavazos) is forbidden to marry her true love, Pedro (Marco Leonardi). Since tradition dictates that Tita must care for her mother, Pedro weds her older sister, Rosaura (Yareli Arizmendi), though he still loves Tita. The situation creates much tension in the family, and Tita’s powerful emotions begin to surface in fantastical ways through her cooking. As the years pass, unusual circumstances test the enduring love of Pedro and Tita.
