Serious Look at Borderline Insanity Involving Food
5.5 of 10. While there are comedic elements, many films can say that. This is a serious look at an eating disorder and borderline insanity involving infatuation with food as a cure for everything.
The more enjoyable elements that won't result in you potentially vomiting into a toilet involve issues of trust, introducing art into displaying food, homelessness, and the realities of restaurant work and apartment life.
The less enjoyable involve an old lady repeating clichés and introducing more melodrama than humor for the prototypical young adults trying to find a purpose for their life.
Not quite up to the requirements of a delicious film, but worth a taste.
