Day 135

Movie: Today's Special
Starring: Aasif Mandvi, Harish Patel
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Year: 2009
Format: DVD

Plot: After getting fired from  his job, a French  chef decides to help run his family's Indian restaurant, only he has no idea what he's gotten himself into.

This is a lovable story.  It's got some universal ideas going on here- wanting to be independent of your family to follow your own dreams but having to bend to the responsibility of family.
It's also a love story on a few levels.  There is a new romance for the lead character as well as him repairing his relationship with his family and in the big picture his own culture.

What do I think I learned from this film?
Time and measurement only go so far then you have to lead with your soul
