The Taste of Things

Sunday • June 16 • 5:30pm
Sunday Movie Club at The Iowa Theater

The actors who play the principal characters in “The Taste of Things,” Juliette Binoche and Benoit Magimel, were actually married in real life for a number of years. The film, which won the award for Best Director at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, screens at the Iowa Theater Sunday at 5:30. Total running time is 2:15. The dialogue is in French, with English subtitles.

Set in France in 1889, “The Taste of Things” centers on the relationship between Eugenie (Binoche), an esteemed cook, and Monsieur Dodin, the gourmet she has served for twenty years. The two have a synergy in the kitchen that creates mouthwatering and innovative culinary treats for Dodin and his fellow gourmands. As viewers watch the multi-course meals being prepared using nineteenth century techniques (like a wood fired oven), they can almost smell the food! The film is at times almost like a documentary of vintage French cooking methods.

The relationship between Eugenie and Dodin, which is already romantic, deepens when she has a bout of ill health. Dodin, who has asked Eugenie to marry him several times over the years, begins cooking for the beautiful woman who has cooked for him and his friends for so long, and proposes to her once again.

The screening is part of the Iowa Theater’s Sunday Movie Club, which offers once-a-month opportunities to view thought-provoking films. Membership costs $75 per year for the 12-movie series, but anyone can attend by purchasing a ticket for $8. Sunday Movie Club screenings include a brief, optional discussion following the credit roll. The book-club-like conversations are variously facilitated by theater staff, board members, and club members.

RAGBRAI will be in Winterset in just 6 weeks, and many riders are in need of a place to stay when they get here. There are currently over 100 RAGBRAI groups in search of overnight accommodations when they roll into town next month, and we need your help to host them!

Join the RAGBRAI committee on Wednesday, June 26, at 6:00pm. at the Winterset City Park South Shelter for a fun evening of adopting groups in need, picking one that fits best with what you’d like to offer. From couples to small groups, there is a team that will be the perfect fit for you! Hosts are only asked to provide what they can, and what they feel comfortable with, to the rider groups. Some teams are only seeking green lawn space, while others would prefer to have access to a shower and restroom. But it’s totally up to the host!
