EAT WITH ME
Tired of being invisible in a bland marriage, Emma moves in with her son Elliot, in his downtown LA loft. Elliot is a chef at a lackluster Chinese restaurant facing foreclosure. Also he’s gay – and Emma’s distaste and denial over this has made strangers of mother and son.
But the two need each other now more than ever, and as Emma indulges herself with the encouragement of a saucy new friend, and Elliot confronts his fears of intimacy, the pair find ways to communicate with food where words fail.
This auspicious directorial debut from David Au offers a fresh take on life, love and food in the heart of Los Angeles through a deliciously emotional and redemptive story supported by a wonderful cast led by Sharon Omi, Teddy Chen Culver, Nicole Sullivan (MADtv) and a surprise moment with George Takei.
