Book to Film: Like Water for Chocolate (1992)

The youngest daughter in her family, the beautiful Tita is forbidden to marry her true love, Pedro. Since tradition dictates that Tita must care for her mother, Pedro weds her older sister, Rosaura, though he still loves Tita. The situation creates much tension in the family, and Tita's powerful emotions begin to surface in fantastical ways through her cooking. As years pass, unusual circumstances test the enduring love of Pedro and Tita. We'll discuss the movie and the book from which it is based. NOTE: Rated R for sexuality. Hispanic1
