Dir: Norman Jewison USA 1987, 102 mins Cert: PG
An operatic comedy about love, family and food in Brooklyn’s Italian-American community, Moonstruck has aged like a fine wine. The story weaves together several affairs, with the fabulous pairing of one-handed baker Ronny (Nicolas Cage) and feisty Loretta (Cher, who won an Oscar) at the heart of things, and a soundtrack which is positively dripping with Puccini and Dean Martin.
This tender, funny film is also full of people eating, and it would be just cruel to make you sit through it on an empty stomach. So to set the scene, we’ve teamed up with the talented students at University College Birmingham to provide an appropriate menu which includes bruschetta, meatballs and New York cheesecake. As Ronny puts it, “I have a feeling this is going to be just delicious…”
