At first glance, Regina and Lucien’s lifestyle seems saturated with romance: husband and wife make a living foraging for mushrooms in the woods of New York, then go door to door selling their wares to restaurants in Manhattan. But as Now, Forager intrudes further upon their life together, it reveals a wife desperate for stability and a husband threatened by his wife’s “disloyalty.” Now, Forager expertly weaves tension into the story of a marriage, punctuated by gorgeous glimpses of the food around which that marriage revolves, while challenging our ideals of romance both within relationships and without.
>> Can’t get enough mushroom romance? We’re thrilled to partner with La Spiga, our neighbors on 12th Avenue and home to some of Seattle’s finest gourmet Northern Italian cuisine.
Chef Sabrina Tinsley at La Spiga has created a limited-edition, three-course mushroom tasting menu to celebrate Now, Forager’s Seattle premiere, for your pre-screening pleasure. All mushroom diners at the restaurant receive a 2-for-1 admission coupon to the film.
