Movie Night - Tortilla Soup
August 12, 2009
7:00 p.m. FREE
A special movie night at the museum to celebrate the exhibit Key Ingredients: America by Food,
a Smithsonian traveling exhibition.
Retired Mexican-American chef Martin Naranjo shares an L.A. home with
his three gorgeous, but single, adult daughters.
Though he long ago
lost his ability to taste, Martin still lives to cook incredibly lavish
dinners for his loved ones and to serve them in a family-style ritual
at traditional sit-down meals. Although the women humor their father's
old-fashioned ways, each of them is searching for fulfillment outside
the family circle. College student Maribel is growing increasingly
frustrated with the singles scene and wants a steady man; gorgeous
career woman Carmen is fed up with her boyfriend and his wandering eye;
meanwhile, eldest daughter Letitia, who has suppressed her own romantic
longings, senses something missing in her life. Things take a turn for
the romantic when Dad, a widower, meets a vivacious divorcee on the
lookout for a mate and each of his daughters, in turn, finds someone.
But they'll all discover that the recipe for happiness may call for
some unexpected ingredients.
