Synopsis

French refugee Babette is taken in by a Protestant pastor and his two daughters in 19th century Denmark. To show her gratitude for the family and the town that welcomed her, Babette cooks a dinner on the day of the Pastor's one hundredth birthday. The meal turns out to be the feast of a lifetime, and everyone involved is forever changed by the unexpected experience.
