South West Picture Show Presents Babette’s Feast (U)

Starring Stephanie Audran, Bodil Kjer, and Birgitte Federspiel
One of the most sumptuous and visual celebrations of food, cooking and consumption ever made, Babette’s Feast is based on a short story by Karen Blixen. In mid-19th century Denmark, two spinster sisters in a remote Danish village take in a French refugee, Babette, who turns out to be an excellent cook and housekeeper. On winning the lottery, Babette prepares a special feast for the sisters and their friends to repay them for their kindness. A film about humanity, community and humility, it was a game-changer for Scandinavian film-making on its release and it continues to enthrall audiences as a timeless classic. This was the first Danish film to win an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 1988.
