The Italian restaurant. Cafe tables, white tablecloths.
Jim sits perusing a menu. A robotic waiter – a machina, not a counterfeit human – rolls up to the table.
JIM: Let me have the rigatoni all viable, with the sautéed spinach and a glass of the Montepulciano.
PASSENGERS, SCREENPLAY, 2016
Passengers, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt, is nominated two Oscars this year – Production Design and Music (Original Score). It was a highly anticipated movie since the script has been on the Black List for years. Although I quite enjoyed the first half of the movie, it unfortunately went downhill from then on. What did you think of the movie? I couldn’t help but think of what I wouldn’t have done if I was him. I’ll honestly be likely order room service all day!
This recipe is inspired by one of the scenes on the movie when Jim finally decided to let loose and have fun. He goes to a fancy Italian restaurant and orders a rigatoni alla diablo, sautéed spinach, and a glass of wine. You can definitely add more spice if you like or maybe even some chipotle peppers.
