Eating is an indispensable human activity. As a result, whether we realize it or not, the drive to obtain food has been a major catalyst across all of history from prehistoric times to the present. Epicure Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin said it best: “Gastronomy governs the whole life of man.”

The Queen

 

Friday, January 31
1:00 PM

 

Queen Elizabeth represents the age old custom in England of keeping one’s emotions a strictly private affair clashing with celebrity-fixated public’s need for an outpouring of grief. The Royal Family finds all this sensationalizing very distasteful and quite incomprehensible, whereas Prime Minister Blair, and the public, seem astonished by the Queen’s utter lack of any genuine emotion. Therein lies the heart of this movie.
