Chocolat, Juliette Binoche, DVD
An amazing story based on Joanne Harris' novel about independence and celebration of spirit in spite of cultural acceptability. The novel was perfectly adapted for the big screen and features brilliant performances by Alfred Molina, Juliette Binoche, Dame Judy Dench (who won a SAG award for her supporting role), Lena Olin, Johnny Depp, and Carrie-Anne Moss (to name a few). Of course, director Lasse Halstron's delivers the sensual story in visual perfection. Beautiful imagery and simplistic scenes.
