Midweek Matinee: What's Cooking? | Nov 4

Watch Thanksgiving-themed movies in the Community Room. 

What's Cooking: In LA's Fairfax district, where ethnic groups abound, four households (Vietnamese, Latino, Jewish, and African American) celebrate Thanksgiving amidst family tensions. In the Nguyen family, the children's acculturation and immigrant parents' fears collide. In the Avila family, Isabel's son has invited her estranged husband to their family dinner. Audrey and Ron Williams want to keep their own family's ruptures secret from Ron's visiting mother. In the Seelig household, Herb and Ruth are unwilling to discuss openly their grown daughter's living with her lover, Carla. Around each table, things come to a head. Rated PG-13. Directed by Gurinder Chadha.
