As we practice social distancing and (hopefully) spend more time at home, now would seem an ideal time to read a book or see a movie.
If nothing else, it will give you something to talk about in your group chats as you argue about which is better, the original book or the film adaptation.
“Like Water for Chocolate” by Laura Esquivel
The whimsical and delicious novel about a young woman forbidden to marry by tradition who pours all of her passion into her cooking, made it to the big screen in
the 1992 film starring Lumi Cavazos and Marco Leonardi.
Make sure to have some popcorn of some other type of snack handy while both reading and watching.
Where to stream: Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, iTunes, Google Play and Vudu.
“The Godfather” by Mario Puzo
