      Food in Film: The Witches of Eastwick (1987) w/ BUNNERS BAKESHOP!

      Food in Film at the Revue Cinema launches its fourth season with THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK (1987) and food pairing by Bunners Bakeshop! About the film THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK (1987)USA 1987 118min 14A Directed by George MillerStarring Cher, Susan Sarandon, Michelle Pfeiffer, Jack Nicholson If you’re looking for a movie that portrays a trio of women who discover witchcraft as a form of feminist empowerment, this is NOT the movie for you. In fact, this movie has been described as male-gazey, heteronormative, kinda gross, and anti-feminist. It introduces us to Jack Nicholson as the devil, whose name is Daryl Van Horne (lame!) and who sports a dumb ponytail and seduces women in his satin bathrobe. DVH--as his licence plate says--arrives on scene when our three, female protagonists (played by Cher, Susan Sarandon, and Michelle Pfeiffer) conjure him as ‘the perfect man’ over martinis one Thursday evening. Over many meals, tennis matches, bedroom fourplay, and random parties with pink balloons, all three women fall under the spell of Daryl Van Horne, and in turn discover their own powers and sexual prowess. Directed by George Miller (Mad Max: Fury Road), who had never before filmed a movie in the USA, this film has a lot of cringe-worthy moments. That being said, it also has killer fashion, a gagillion WTF moments that will make you laugh, stars three queens of Hollywood who eventually take control of their power to exact revenge, and features numerous meals in DVH’s mansion, as well as an iconic, cherry pit/vomit scene. - CORA JAMES About the restaurant Bunner’s Bakeshop is Toronto’s premier, vegan and gluten-free bakery. With three locations feeding the West-End, Bunner’s has shown the city since 2010 “that vegan and gluten-free do not require compromise.” About the series Here's how Food in Film works: The Revue selects a film and partners with a restaurant/chef, who then creates a themed snack to complement the selected film. Your ticket includes both the film and snack! Upon checking in at the cinema on the day of the event, you will be given a Food Ticket, which is redeemable at the serving station inside the cinema! These events tend to sell out, so we advise you arrive early! Food in Film at the Revue Cinema is sponsored by Meridian Credit Union. *Your ticket includes the food pairing. Just like a busy restaurant, advance tickets/reservations to the Revue's Food in Film series are required. Tickets will not be available at the door, and membership free screening tickets are not applicable for this event. Doors open at 6:15 PM.
