The Hundred-Foot Journey - Out In Theatres Now!

Based on the novel by Richard C. Morais, The Hundred-Foot Journey follows a Mumbai family that moves to France, where they open up an Indian restaurant headed by Papa (Puri), right across the street from a Michelin star restaurant owned by Madame Mallory (Mirren). She is proud of her classic French cuisine and despises the intrusion of the Indian family. After an act of violence on the Indian family that leaves Papa's son and aspiring cook, Hassan (Manish Dayal), injured, Madame Mallory opens the doors to her restaurant to him and hires him to work at her restaurant and learn everything about French cuisine.

The Hundred-Foot Journey was a very enjoyable film, with hilarious quips and complaints between the rival restauranteurs. This movie will have your mouth watering at the Indian and French delicacies that the chefs cook up. "Food is memories" is a central theme of the movie, and you'll soon be thinking of your own food-related memories. Don't go watch this on an empty stomach!
