Part of the Food and Film Series. Enjoy your favorite films on the big screen in the FringeArts Theater, paired with an expertly crafted meal from the kitchen of La Peg, cooked up specifically for each film by executive chef Peter Woolsey.
In the animated French film Triplets of Belleville, dialogue is mostly set aside. Expression, mannerisms, and a quirky score all synthesize to produce a truly rich experience. A grandmother gets entangled in a nefarious mob scandal after she goes searching for her kidnapped grandson, a professional cyclist. She brings along her faithful but blasé dog, Bruno, and enlists the help of elderly triplet sisters, once known for their vaudeville successes, who now specialize in unconventional instruments and cooking frogs. Preconceived notions of animated films will be immediately squashed upon entering director Sylvain Chomet’s bizarrely charming, sometimes creepy, rendering of France and its inhabitants.
Ticket includes a multi-course French bistro meal based on food in the film crafted by La Peg’s Executive Chef Peter Woolsey and served banquet-style in the FringeArts theater.
