Dinner & a Movie: Tell No One

Based on Harlan Coben’s suspense thriller, this French action film starts with a married couple’s idyllic trip to a childhood picnic/swimming pond.  It quickly shifts gears, however, into a complex and occasionally gritty mystery.  Our French picnic will include leek and bacon quiche, brie with fruit, salade Nicoise, grilled tuna, crusty French bread, and raspberry clafoutis.

Dinner & a Movie:  About Time

If you liked Love Actually, you will enjoy this English time travel romantic comedy by the same author/director.  Protagonist Tim describes himself as “too tall, too thin, and too orange,” but he has one advantage: the ability to travel back in time within his own life.   This endearing film takes us to the Cornish coastline, so we will celebrate with Cornish high tea, including crab bisque, scones, steak and stout pie, grilled asparagus, Cornish cherry chocolates, and assorted tarts.
