'The Hundred-Foot Journey'
You'll be charmed beyond belief and seriously hungry after watching this new Lasse Hallström film about a culture clash between a Michelin-starred French restaurant in the south of France that faces competition from the displaced Kadam family who open up an Indian restaurant across the street. The owner of the French restaurant, Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren, wonderful, of course), is none too pleased by the new, loud, different eatery, and goes out of her way to stop it. But when she meets the Kadam's young chef, Hasan (Manish Dayal), a food star in the making, everything changes. See the film and be charmed yourself.
