International film series: "Contra"
Time: 7:00pm
Location: Olin B Lecture Hall

The spring International Film Series — hosted by the Department of Modern Languages — continues with Contra.

Synopsis: One problematic remark too many: Professor Richard Pohl is in danger of being kicked out of his job after insulting law student Naima Hamid in front of a packed lecture hall. When the video goes viral, the college president gives him one last chance: his chances before the disciplinary committee will be much better if he succeeds in preparing freshman Hamid for a national debate competition. Pohl and Naima are equally appalled but over time this unlikely duo starts clicking – until Naima realizes that the multicultural fairy tale only serves one purpose: to save the college’s reputation.

(Germany, 2020, Comedy/Drama, 104 min., NR)

This film is free and open to the public.

International film series: "Delicious "
Time: 7:00pm
Location: Olin B Lecture Hall

The spring International Film Series — hosted by the Department of Modern Languages — continues with Delicious.

Synopsis: Writer/director Éric Besnard's mouth-watering new historical comedy indelibly pairs Grégory Gadebois and Isabelle Carré as a gifted chef and his unlikely protégé, who must find the resolve to free themselves from servitude. In 1789 France, just prior to the Revolution, gastronomy is strictly the domain of the aristocrats; indeed, the prestige of a noble house is entirely dependent on the quality and reputation of its table. So, when the talented but prideful cook Manceron (Gadebois) serves an unapproved dish of his own creation at a dinner hosted by the self-entitled Duke of Chamfort (C'est La Vie's Benjamin Lavernhe), the repercussions are brutal, and he is promptly dismissed. The wounded Manceron swears off his passion and retreats with his son to a regional inn visited only infrequently by travellers, and where vegetable soup is the common meal. But when a mysterious woman (Carré) arrives and offers to pay to become his apprentice, the stage is set for a wildly enjoyable tale of reignited passion, mentorship and revenge... and of the creation of France's very first restaurant. Joining the ranks of films such as Big Night, Chocolat and Babette's Feast in its joyous depiction of the preparation and love of fine cuisine, DELICIOUS is just that.

(France, 2021, Comedy/History/Drama, 112 min, NR)

This film is free and open to the public.
