3. Actor Faith Klick (The Marvelous Wonderettes, Fools, Crimes of the Heart) says, “This month my favorite has been (surprise,surprise) baking bread! I just started this new form of baking and I love it! There is nothing like the smell of fresh bread and using it to make a grilled cheese. My newest favorite loaf is focaccia bread. This loaf has rosemary, garlic, olives, and cherry tomatoes on it. It was heavenly. Baking bread is a great way to desires and think about something else. Highly recommend!!!”
Despite having played several high school sports, I would not consider myself a ‘sports person.’ But I couldn't help but fall in love with Ted and his team of misfits. I laughed, I cried, I reconsidered all of my life decisions, I could not recommend it more. It may be difficult to get a hold of since it's only streaming on Apple TV+, a less-purchased streaming service, but if you know a friend who will let you use their passcode or if you're willing to start your 7-day free trial, it's well worth it!"
6. Isaac Bont, our Marketing Director says, “Feel good movies can get a bad rap these days. Chef by Jon Favreau is absolutely an easy breezy movie that I caught on Netflix that I'd heard good things about previously. It follows a professional chef as he reworks his personal and artistic life over a food truck road trip from Miami to New Orleans to Texas. The most interesting thing to me about this film was the story structure. Following the first twenty minutes, there is no conflict. It's just a feel good journey with likeable characters and a lot of great food and music following the climax of conflict that happens within the first ten minutes. Very strange story structure which pays off because it was still enjoyable to watch, and a testament that we don't always need the old tried and true story structure of a normal narrative journey! Also, it's a love letter to Cuban sandwiches... more on those in my April Festival Fave coming up!
