Woman on Top

Directed by Fina Torres

Cruz’s first starring role in an American film is this delicious romantic comedy. WOMAN ON TOP’s recipe mixes Brazilian settings and bossa nova with a spicy foodie love story, sprinkled with magic realism. Isabella (Cruz) suffers from extreme motion sickness but the gods have compensated her with amazing skills in the kitchen and a handsome restaurateur husband. When she catches her macho spouse cheating, Isabella flees to San Francisco. There, with the support of her drag queen gal pal Monica (Perrineau), she becomes the local pin-up as the presenter of Passion Food, a TV cooking show.
