Come celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Pittsburgh film The Bread My Sweet — a love story about the Strip District’s own Enrico’s Biscotti Company. We’ll have complimentary biscotti as well as a short intro from the filmmakers Adrienne Wehr and Melissa Martin.
Dominic works round the clock: nights making biscotti for his family’s bakery in a working-class Italian neighborhood in Pittsburgh, then days downtown where he’s a specialist in firing people at a company that negotiates mergers. He’s thrown for a loop with he learns that Bella, an elderly neighbor who’s his family’s closest friend, has but a few months to live. All her life, she’s saved money in coffee cans for her daughter, Lucca’s, wedding, but Lucca is off in foreign lands, initially as a Peace Corps volunteer, and doesn’t need a man. Dominic vows to bring Lucca home and convince her to marry him to fulfill Bella’s most fervent wish. What will Lucca say?
