Directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu, Biutiful stars Javier Bardem as a dying father of two children. As his death draws near, his only goal is to find a suitable caretaker for his kids. The drama, nominated for two Oscars, represented Mexico in the Best Foreign Language Film category and garnered Bardem his third Oscar nom. The film will be available to stream until June 28.

Dinner: Since the movie was primarily shot in Spain, how about munching on a seafood paella con un vinito blanco.

Dinner: For snack options, consider foods from any of the locations featured in the movie, such as Hawaii, the Philippines, San Francisco and Las Vegas. We suggest some finger-licking Filipino ribs with a sweet and tangy sauce.
