Hosted by Pete Grant, this 1987 Danish film centers on Protestant sisters Martine and Philippa, who grew to spinsterhood in rural 19th-century Denmark under the wrathful eye of their father, a strict pastor. A Parisian refugee named Babette arrives to serve as the family cook and housekeeper; 14 years later she wins a French lottery and plans a lavish celebratory banquet that tempts the family’s congregation—which has been dwindling since their father’s death—who abjure such Earthly pleasures as fine foods and wines.
