Our concept: Washington Square Nights: Our concept is that The JPT picks a one night only film that ties to a theme usually on the first or second Tuesday of the month. Stoneacre Brasserie and other restaurants on the square will add something special to their menu that ties to that theme for the evening. Sometimes it will be foodie films and sometimes just a good film on any topic. You will buy a ticket for the film only at www.janepickens.com and visit then Stoneacre before or after the film making your own food and drink choices. It will be a good chance to discuss the film with other movie-goers and just an excuse for a community gathering
The film: Martha is the chef at a small gourmet restaurant in Hamburg who creates mini-masterpieces in every dish. She devotes every waking hour to her work and her shyness keeps her from breaking out of her monotonous routine or meeting new people. When her sister dies in an accident, however, she is compelled to adopt Lina, her 8-year-old niece. Martha's life changes in an instant: not only is she faced with adjusting to her new parental role, but she must also find inspired ways to deal with Lina's grief over the loss of her mother. Surprisingly, help comes from Mario, Martha's new Italian sous-chef, who begins to visit Martha and Lina, doing all that he can to cheer them up with jokes and elaborate meals. Just as the trio returns to a stage of normalcy in their lives, Lina's long missing father arrives, announcing that he wants to take Lina back to Italy with him. Having grown to love Lina and her own role as the girl's protector, Martha is faced with a difficult dilemma.
