Dear CW,

Here's a fun one... I've been asked to come up with a list of feature
films for a nutrition counseling class that show how people may use food
to cope, doctor or counselor/patient interaction, or food rituals in the
home. She is not necessarily looking for films where food is an
overarching theme -- rather, films with scenes that can be used as a
discussion-starter to liven up a lecture. A few ideas that the prof.
has come up with already are:

Patch Adams
Soul Food
Two Weeks Notice
Parenthood
The Doctor
Bridget Jones Diary

A couple of others with key scenes that I'm thinking of are:

Candy
Pieces of April
Spanglish (though I haven't seen it)
Fried Green Tomatoes

I keep wanting to recommend the 'Itis episode of The Boondocks, but I
don't quite thing that's what she's after ;) . If anyone can recall /
recommend specific scenes (in case I haven't seen the film in question
recently), I'd be very appreciative.

Thanks in advance,

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
