  • Son of Rambow

    As a self-confessed movie geek who squandered far too much of his childhood in the shelter of a darkened movie theater, I'm predisposed to identify with a story about boyish film obsession. I only wish that this movie itself were more worthy of obsessing over. Son of Rambow is a fitfully charming and engaging little romp, but it's not likely to inspire anyone to the frenzied heights of passion displayed by the movie's kid heroes. The stars are a mismatched outcast duo, united by imagination and a dearth of good male role models.

    Oslo patrons can choose between sushi and a longish list of superior Thai dishes; the sushi is sliced and rolled by Korean-born John Riney. Tom kha, the soup with coconut milk and chicken, is both creamy and salty, with generous chunks of chicken. Drunken noodles are peppery yet luscious, the noodles fat and slippery, with a fold-in garnish of fresh basil leaves. Equally delicious was a “signature” dish called simply “Oslo Udon Noodles.” Chicken and shrimp and the usual vegetables join wide noodles of a pleasing firmness in a faintly sweet and certainly hot garlic sauce. Almost all the signatures feature garlic, and none coconut milk, so now you know Chef Rossbach’s tastes.
