The votes are in, Chef it is!! 8:45 showing works best for me so putting that up. Suggest meeting at Circus Circus (across the street) around 8pm before if people want a drink and chat. We will head over to the cinema around 8:30pm. See you there!!
Director Jon Favreau (SWINGERS, IRON MAN) returns to his indie comedy roots with this alternately acerbic and heartwarming tale. LA chef Carl Casper (Favreau) was once hailed as a culinary wunderkind, but now finds himself stuck behind the same stoves dispensing the same slick fare night after night, his creativity stifled.
The arrival of a hotshot food critic (Platt, TV’s Fargo) seems to be exactly the new gastronomic opportunity Carl’s been waiting for, but his boss (Hoffman) insists that he stick to the usual kitchen script. The critic duly tweets a hilariously scathing review, and Carl explodes in an outpouring of rage that goes viral.
Mouthwatering foodie scenes – supervised by real-life LA chef Roy Choi – are matched by touching comedy drama in this deceptively profound story of family, friendship and artistic integrity.
