I found this looking for food movies, and this is a great movie about food, but it is so much more. This movie is about the complexities of family, how one generation always wants the next to have it better, and how that can lead to problems, and mistakes made on both sides. This movie is also about overcoming those mistakes, and being able to move forward as a family. This is a great movie, and I would recommend it to anyone.
