Despite an awkwardly jokey title, Now, Forager has charm, intelligence and a cool passion for its principled characters -- an appealing off-menu slice for hungry indie admirers.

Likeably unassuming, good-looking US indie may exert offbeat appeal to the foodie crowd.

A lack of dramatic force and zero chemistry between the leads make the film play like a compilation of episodes rather than a flowing narrative, but two sequences are inspired, and the rest has an earnest if underwhelming appeal.

Mushrooms, food and romance collide in Jason Cortlund and Julia Halperin's modestly charming indie debut.

Now, Forager beautifully depicts the connection between nature and our plates and bleakly portrays how obsession and rigidity can slowly smother a relationship.
