A coming-of-age/coming out story adapted from the “memoir by British food writer, journalist and TV host Nigel Slater, the title refers to Slater’s kitchen-challenged mother’s one foolproof recipe; the go-to dish that regularly followed her home-cooked disasters, which were often of the boiled-in-their-own-can variety (LA Times).” Takes place in 1960s Britain and features fantastic music selections. It’s a hearty period piece that tackles family dynamics, a new parent, competition, personal success, etc. I am not going to say that it’s epic film work, but it was slightly odd, at times voluminous and at times solemn and detached. I don’t feel my time was wasted after watching it. So, I consider it fine.
