Movie Info

The title of Henry Jaglom's stream-of-consciousness Eating says it all. Three women (Lisa Blake Richards, Mary Crosby and Marlena Giovi), each celebrating a "milestone" birthday, decide to throw a joint party. Attending the revelries is French documentary filmmaker Martine Nely Alard, who becomes fascinated when none of the guests will touch the meticulously prepared birthday cake. As Martine begins interviewing the partygoers, she discovers the importance that food holds in each of their lives.

Goes on for too long and becomes overcooked, though parts of it are tasty in an idiosyncratic way.

Though largely shallow, Jaglom's high-concept serio-comedy is timely and has a few observant moments about women's food and beauty anxieties
