Chocolat (2000)

Coming Out at 22 December 2000 in theaters.

Drama, Romance

Chocolat is romantic-drama film, directed by Lasse Hallström. Its screenplay, by screenwriter Robert Nelson Jacobs, is based on the 1999 novel of the same name by English author Joanne Harris. Set in 1959 in France, Chocolat tells the story of Vianne Rocher, played by Juliette Binoche, who along with her six-year-old daughter Anouk (Victoire Thivisol) arrives in the fictional village of Lansquenet-sous-Tannes to open a small chocolaterie – at the beginning of Lent. Soon, she and her chocolate influence the lives of the townspeople of this repressed village in many different and interesting ways.

The film began a limited release in the United States on December 22, 2000, and went on general release on January 19, 2001. Critics gave the drama positive reviews, praising its acting performances, its screenplay and Rachel Portman’s score. The film garnered a number of accolades, including many for its screenplay, direction, acting, and music. It received five nominations at the 73rd Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Binoche won the European Film Award for Best Actress for her performance, while Dench was awarded a Screen Actors Guild Award in 2001.
