Public Welcome To 'Babette's Feast' At Auteur Film Series

April 13, 2006 - There will be plenty of drama and poignant moments during "Babette's Feast."

The film is the next installment of the Collin County Community College District (Collin) 2005-06 Auteur Film Series titled "Food for Thought." The screening is at 7 p.m., Thursday, April 27, at the Spring Creek Campus Conference Center, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano.

"Babette's Feast" centers around a 19th-century Parisian political refugee who finds a home in a Danish town with the two elderly daughters of the town's minister. The sisters were once beautiful young women who forsook their chances at romance and fame, taking hollow refuge in religion. Babette holds a secret that may very well allow the older women to have a second chance at life.

The film is 102 minutes and is rated G.

Following the movie, a panel discussion led by several Collin faculty and staff will be held.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and seating is limited. The screening is free and open to the public.
