A drama that foodies can sink their teeth into, NOW, FORAGER charts the unraveling of a shaky marriage founded on the pair’s livelihood harvesting rare wild mushrooms in the New Jersey woods and peddling them to chic Manhattan eateries. Lucien craves the footloose roaming life but Regina aspires to a foothold in a high-end kitchen. They’re exacting, cantankerous and uncompromising; their food is gorgeous. Flouting his disapproval, she takes faltering steps toward her dream, while, in the film’s most archly satirical sequence, Lucien has a disastrous catering encounter with the privileged wife of a conservative Washington politico.
Director: Jason Cortlund and Julia Halperin
