Woman on Top

Penélope Cruz stars in this Like Water For Chocolate-style romantic comedy. Cruz is a Brazilian chef who suffers from extreme motion sickness (don't ask). When her dissatisfied hubby cheats on her, the heartbroken Cruz heads to San Francisco to visit an old tranvestite pal of hers (shades of Pedro Almodóvar). There her spicy (and somehow magical) cooking enthralls everyone she comes in contact with. See also: I Like to Watch (Instantly): Broken Embraces, Woman on Top (12/13/2010). 83 minutes
