Mushrooms are the visual centerpiece of a new film by directors Jason Cortlund and Julia Halperin about a couple that forages for wild edibles to sell to restaurants. It's an intense film that chronicles an evolving relationship, but it is also full of beautiful scenes of discovering hen of woods, morels, and myriad other mushrooms in the woods around New York City. Passionate and knowledegeable, the man and woman argue about their future and their finds — the kingdom of fungi an impartial witness to a marriage in distress.
