This Week's Film: Air America
Cuisine: Laotian

Synopsis: Robert Downey Jr. and Mel Gibson star as Billy Covington and Gene Ryack, maverick pilots working in Laos for a covert smuggling operation facilitated by the CIA. Covington is in it for the adrenaline rush, while Ryack has his own agenda. But when the stakes become too high, and the ethical standards too low, both pilots must examine the consequences of their actions.

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 Laotian recipe.
