Eat Drink Man Woman (1994)
Wednesday, July 27, 8:30 p.m.

In this award-winning Taiwanese film — the first of celebrated director Ang Lee's films to be both a critical and box office success, trouble is cooking for widower and master chef Chu who is about to discover that no matter how dazzling and delicious his culinary creations might be, they're no match for the libidinous whims of his three beautiful but rebellious daughters. A master in the kitchen, Chu is at a loss when it comes to the ingredients of being a father.
