This Week's Film: American Pastime
Cuisine: Japanese

Synopsis: Life throws Lyle Nomura a curve ball when he lands in a WWII Japanese internment camp instead of going to school on a baseball scholarship. Internment camp guard Bully Burrell knows baseball disappointment as well since his career came to a dead end in the minor league. When a romance is kindled between Nomura and Burrell’s daughter, naturally, Burrell and Nomura work out their differences on the baseball diamond.

Join me throughout the week on Chopstick Cinema for a closer look at the food and the film. My film review will be posted at the end of the week, along with my Japanese recipe.
