Today @andresclemente_ talking about the #movie #Encanto
Dir. Jared Bush, Byron Howard and Charise Castro Smith
Starring: Stephanie Beatriz, John Leguizamo Maria Cecicila Botero
A young Colombian girl has to face the frustration of being the only member of her family without magical powers.
Great music by Lin Manuel Miranda.
The main song is in Spanish and sung by Sebastian Yatra.
A visual spectacle.
Stephanie Beatriz's Mirabel makes the audience root for her from the very beginning. Younger siblings will no doubt relate with the character.
Great animated short before the film. Worth showing up early to the movie theater.
The sibling personalities and their relationship feels very genuine.
The directors and animators give the "Casita" a great personality.
The film finishes abruptly; wanted more time with the family reunited.
John Leguizamo gives the same voice performance as Sid from Ice Age.
Abuela Alma is incredibly unlikable. Hard for the audience to understand her motives.
Some family characters are just there for spectacle and latin stereotypes. Very little, if any, influence in the story.
The Madrigal's contribution to the community is thin. Only the Super strong Luisa seems really useful.
Another winner by Disney. They have been able to expand their classic Princess catalog into more fun and diverse family stories. Encanto has a great soundtrack, real characters, heartfelt moments, funny bits and a "dare you not to get misty eyed" conclusion. As a younger sibling to amazing big sisters, felt very related to Mirabel's wish to shine in the eyes of her family. A must see for the whole family.

4 egg yolks
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted (1 stick)
8 slices Smoked Salmon
8 Potato latkes, recipe from last week (kept warm in a 250º oven)
2 teaspoons white vinegar
Salt and pepper, to taste
Hollandaise Sauce, recipe above
Fresh dill, for garnish
Instructions for the sauce:
Vigorously whisk the egg yolks and lemon juice together in a stainless steel bowl and until the mixture is thickened and doubled in volume. Place the bowl over a saucepan containing barely simmering water (or use a double boiler,) the water should not touch the bottom of the bowl. Continue to whisk rapidly. Be careful not to let the eggs get too hot or they will scramble. Slowly drizzle in the melted butter and continue to whisk until the sauce is thickened and doubled in volume. Remove from heat, whisk in cayenne and salt. Cover and place in a warm spot until ready to use for the eggs benedict. If the sauce gets too thick, whisk in a few drops of warm water before serving.
