It’s great how films about food have become so popular (more on this in the coming weeks) this is one of the first ones that uses food in a non-documentary way. Usually the movies are about the politics of food (Food Inc) or something to do with cooking (El Bulli) or sometimes a particular issue, like the meat industry or the grown of corn (Fast Food Nation, King Corn). True Fast Food Nation was made into a sort of fictional film even though it felt to me very much like a documentary.
Anyway Now Forager is really a story of a relationship where the two people in the relationship are foragers who sell mushrooms and whatnot to the restaurants of NYC.
I like the idea, but from what I get from the trailer….well, I’m not sure. Anyone seen it? Going to see it? Thoughts?
