Big Night At Telluride's Library: Film Fest Features "Big NIght," 5/10
"Big Night" is a delicious tale of mouthwatering food and boiling passions. The story is built around a belt-popping pig-out at a Jersey trattoria which can't get no respect. The engaging dramedy revolves around two brothers in the pursuit of the American Dream.
Secondo is the smooth front-man who struggles to keep his restaurant financially viable, despite the slow drip of patrons through the door. Primo is the genius chef who must prepare his masterpiece, the glorious meal of a lifetime for their big night when bandleader Louis Prima comes to save the day. Also with Marc Anthony, Minnie Driver, Isabella Rossellini, and Liev Schreiber.
“Big Night is one of the great food movies, and yet it is so much more. It is about food not as a subject but as a language–the language by which one can speak to gods, can create, can seduce, can aspire to perfection…. By the end of the movie, we have been through an emotional and a sensual wringer, in a film of great wisdom and delight," Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times.
Patrons will be treated to Italian spaghetti, bread and Italian beverages. The SHOW will be hosted by popular TFF Ringmaster Seth Berg.
