Good Viewing for Thanksgiving

As I write this, November is almost here, which means it’s time to start thinking about Thanksgiving. Here are my two suggestions, with links to reviews of the films from VP’s archives:

What’s Cooking? (2000)

What’s Cooking? Is a delightful feast of a film set in Los Angeles where four families–African American (with two yuppie guests), Vietnamese, Latino, and Jewish—are preparing very different meals and face some serious problems.

Broadway Danny Rose (1984)

Woody Allen’s is a funny Christ figure film about a Manhattan talent agent who watches over his lowly clients, inviting them each year to share a Thanksgiving meal (TV dinners–turkey, of course!) that has a sacramental touch.

Either will liven up a Thanksgiving celebration.
