Additional Info

A woman studying nutrition desperately needs help in a music course she is also taking. She visits the class whiz guy, her arms laden with books, hoping to cram with him. She finds that she knows too little; she can remember Mozart's dates of birth and death, but is totally dumb about his feelings toward the oboe and clarinet. He, on the other hand, has prepared a small supper for them and gotten it all wrong, knowing nothing about nutrition. Their confrontations are dramatically spell binding and cannily illuminating about art and comestibles.
