Please join me for Words on Bathroom Walls for #FoodnFlix

I am very excited to be hosting our FoodnFlix this month.........
Words on Bathroom Walls

I have chosen the film Words on Bathroom Walls for this month's events.  I first saw this film a year ago when my son was home from VA and recommended that we watch it.  It is available on Amazon and is free if you are a Prime member.  

This is the story of Adam, a bright, funny and smart teenager who suffers from schizophrenia.  The only thing that he has found to quiet the voices in his head is cooking and creating in the kitchen.  He dreams of becoming a chef one day.  As his symptoms worsen and he has a harder time controlling the illness his dream looks like it may be unattainable as is his hope for a "normal" life.

It tells of the stigma attached to mental illness, the cruelty of some people and the goodness of other people.  It is a coming of age movie unlike any other I have seen and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I hope you do too and that you find tons of food inspiration.

Anyone can join in the fun...if you are not a blogger you can still join and share the information on instagram.  Here is all you need to do......

  1. I would never have watched this movie because it looked too YA. But I've watched it three times now because I wanted to share it with my family and no one could sit down and watch at the same time. Made my recipe last night for dinner. I'll share soon.

  2. I watched this over the weekend and cried and cried. Great pick!

  3. I am looking forward to this film, Wendy.
