Movie Night is back! Come see the movie The One Hundred Foot Journey to explore September’s theme of Welcome.
What does it mean to be welcoming, to be hospitable? Joan D Chittister writes that “[Hospitality] is the first step toward dismantling the barriers of the world. Hospitality is the way we turn a prejudiced world around one heart at a time.”
The One Hundred Foot Journey centers on Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal), an extraordinarily talented and largely self-taught culinary novice. When he and his family are displaced from their native India and settle in a quaint French village, they decide to open an Indian eatery. However, Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), the proprietress of an acclaimed restaurant just 100 feet away, strongly objects. War erupts between the two establishments, until Mallory recognizes Kadam’s impressive epicurean gifts and takes him under her wing.
