This winter – like, let’s be honest, all hibernation seasons – has been entirely about food.
Last month, the library put mozzarella and meatballs on the screen with “Big Night.” Before that, the film series served up “Fried Green Tomatoes,” “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” (complete with lamb for the vegetarians) and even a big, delicious slice of interracial politics in “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.”
It’s enough to throw off anyone’s diet.
And this week, the series concludes with Barry Levinson’s “Diner,” the final course in what has been a vivacious, varied and always tasteful occasion.
“Diner,” set in Baltimore in 1959, follows a group of six friends as they try to become men without giving up being boys. Although the film itself is comedic and ultimately optimistic, the screen-shots are persistently ugly and dark, seemingly lit only by dialogue, the best of which takes place well after midnight, over roast beef sandwiches.
