Rated 4.0 Juliette Binoche and her young daughter open a chocolate shop … during Lent, which antagonizes the aristocratic, deeply religious mayor into starting a duel for the hearts and souls of the villagers. Serving up a mystical brew of hot chocolate (with a pinch of chili pepper) that unleashes the hidden desires of all that partake, she obviously holds the upper hand. As smooth and sweet as hot cocoa and yet peppered with brief dashes of violence and pathos, Chocolat flirts with magical realism and food for the soul.
