Faith & Film Friday: Babette's Feast

The film we will be showing this Friday evening, June 11, beginning at 6:30 p.m., is Babette's Feast. We hope you'll be able to attend!

Babette's Feast
is a 1987 film based on a story by Danish author Isak Dinesen (who also wrote the story that inspired the Academy-award winning film Out of Africa). The first Danish film to win an Academy Award (it's dubbed into English), Babette's Feast centers around a French woman refugee who experiences unexpected good fortune and uses it to prepare a sumptuous feast for the two women spinsters who have taken her in. The generous and loving preparation and the lavish offering of dishes is reminiscent of the Eucharistic Banquet and the bounteous generosity of our God.

Enjoy this "preview," a collection of excerpts from critical reviews; we hope they whet your appetite :) !
