Food is a recurring theme in movies, and this summer has seen at least two films that embrace this savory narrative ingredient. Eat, Pray, Love, the Hollywood-fueled hit, and I Am Love, an art house pick starring the phenomenal Tilda Swinton, follow similar stories: a woman’s journey toward self-realization by way of romantic and gastronomical awakenings.
