Dir. Gurinder Chadha. 2000, 109 mins. 35mm. With Mercedes Ruehl, Kyra Sedgwick, Joan Chen, Lainie Kazan, Julianna Margulies, Dennis Haysbert. Set on Thanksgiving Day, four different families from the four corners of a Los Angeles intersection come together to celebrate the holiday in their own special way. Each family confronts differences and familiarity, laughter and festering anger, shiitake mushrooms and mashed potatoes, near-disaster and, ultimately, the astonishing power of love to connect them all.
