Master chef, teacher and environmental activist Diana Kennedy is living proof that size has nothing to do with strength. Now in her 90s and barely five feet tall, she's a fierce jolt of energy that has become one of the most celebrated culinary legends of Mexican cuisine. Blending incredible archival footage from her many television appearances and unprecedented access to her ecologically sustainable home, Diana Kennedy: Nothing Fancy is a charming homage to a culinary trailblazer and a true inspiration.

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (33)

  • Nothing Fancy doesn't push quite enough at understanding what comes next, but as a presentation of Kennedy's contributions and her brusque singularity, it informs and entertains.

  • The pleasures of the film outweigh its careful reservations, mostly because Kennedy is simply too much fun to observe in her natural habitat.

  • A much-needed perspective.

    May 22, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • What remains is a lively and uncritical portrait of a woman as passionate about composting as chilaquiles, one who will pitch a fit if you put garlic in your guacamole.

    May 21, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A vivid and inspiring profile, adoring but not adulatory.

    May 19, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Kennedy... proves endlessly good company, curious, compassionate and beloved in the country where she has spent the bulk of her adult life.
