"One Of The Best Pictures Of The Year!" -Los Angeles Times

Nominated for 5 Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Best Actress (Juliette Binoche - The English Patient) and Best Supporting Actress (Judi Dench - Shakespeare In Love), Chocolat is the beautiful and captivating comedy from the acclaimed director of The Cider House Rules! Nobody could have imagined the impact that the striking Vianne (Binoche) would make when she arrived in a tranquil, old-fashioned French town. In her very unusual chocolate shop, Vianne begins to create mouth-watering confections that almost magically inspire the straitlaced villagers to abandon themselves to temptation and happiness! But it is not until another stranger, the handsome Roux (Johnny Depp - Sleepy Hollow), arrives in town that Vianne is finally able to recognize her own desires!
