Spinning Plates(2013)

Directors : Joseph Levy

Synopsis:

Spinning Plates is a documentary about three extraordinary restaurants and the incredible people who make them what they are. A cutting-edge restaurant named the seventh-best in the world whose chef must battle a life-threatening obstacle to pursue his passion. A 150-year-old family restaurant still standing only because of the unbreakable bond with its community. A fledgling Mexican restaurant whose owners are risking everything just to survive and provide for their young daughter. Their unforgettable stories of family, legacy, passion and survival come together to reveal how meaningful food can be, and the power it has to connect us to one another.

Our View:

A nice addition to the foodie genre, this doc deftly weaves together three touching stories.

Celebration of Food

Food movies have been trending up the last few years, especially on the reality competition and travel shows. Since there will be plenty of cooking this week, we thought it would be fun to pull together some of the better "food" films, from narrative classics like Big Night, to the more health conscious docs, like Forks over Knives. Have a taste.
