Fried Green Tomatoes (1991)

A feast of acting talent serves up stellar performances in this 1990s classic, reflecting southern manners and hospitality with a dash of hostility, anchored by a timeless tale of loyalty and love. Chocolate is the mnemonic choice of Evelyn Couch, as she is mesmerized by tales she isn’t certain are tall.

Chef (2014)

Ulee’s Gold (1997)

A swarm of disruptions are abuzz in Ulysses Jackson’s life. Will the bees help this independent-minded and terse loner turn his troubles into Tupelo honey? Peter Fonda’s Oscar-nominated performance has been called the finest work of his career.

O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000)

With a flood of great performances, a mix of classic blues, and a surreal, fantastical stroll, this is not your typical walk through the bluegrass park of the South.
