When mysterious Vianne (Juliette Binoche) and her child arrive in a tranquil French town in the winter of 1959, no one could have imagined the impact that she and her spirited daughter (Victoire Thivisol) would have on the community stubbornly rooted in tradition. Within days, she opens an unusual chocolate shop across the square from the church. Her ability to perceive her customers' desires and satisfy them with just the right confection coaxes the villagers to abandon themselves to temptation -- just as Lent begins. Nominated for five Academy Awards.
