This Oscar-winning film from 1987 was written and directed by Gabriel Axel. It is the story of Babette, a refugee from the civil war in Paris, who arrives at the home of pious sisters Martina and Philippa in an isolated village in Denmark. Babette works as their housekeeper for years until one day when she wins the lottery and decides as a farewell to the sisters she will prepare an outrageous and gourmet French meal. The lavish feast tests the moral fiber of the puritanical townsfolk, who vow to withstand the sensual pleasure of the meal.

All Arts Center films are shown at the Meeting House in Tiverton Four Corners.
