I’m not sure about the rest of you, but when someone tells me I can shovel piles of buttery popcorn into my face while watching a movie all about the journey of two culinary masterminds in a dark room where I could wear sweatpants and laugh to my heart’s content, I ask them whether or not Ashton Kutcher is about to jump out from a pillar and/or if there is a contract that includes the offering of my first born and, pen ready, where can I sign to get things rolling.
Lucky for all of us only the good parts about that, y’know with the food and the laughter, are about to hit the silver screen August 8th with the release of Dreamworks Studios’, The Hundred-Foot Journey, starring Academy Award®-winning actress Helen Mirren.
The film follows the culinary dreams of Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) in the south of France as his introduction of an Indian restaurant infringes on Madame Mallory’s (Mirren) territorial culinary claim, just one-hundred feet from the door of the former.
I get it.
I get the title now.
Between the drama of a misplaced Indian family to France, the suspense of a rivalry, and clearly the food (I’m crossing my fingers for a heated food fight that involves the flinging of crepes. Too much?) I know I’ve already scribbled this down as my Friday, August 8th evening activity of choice.
Plus I hear that Carter the Banana Kid is amped up for it too.
