UK Release Date: June 25th 2014

A chef who loses his restaurant job starts up a food truck in an effort to reclaim his creative promise, while piecing back together his estranged family.

Director: Jon Favreau (Elf, Iron Man, Cowboys & Aliens)

Starring: Jon Favreau, Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, Scarlett Johansson, Bobby Cannavale, Emjay Anthony

Chef is a delightful film directed and starring Jon Favreau that shows you that there's more to life than the day-to-day life. It's a feelgood film with plenty of taste and lots of flare. Plus it'll make you very, very hungry. Favreau's Carl Casper starts from the bottom and works his way to the top. He loses his job and has a troubled relationship with his son. Casper's remedies the situation by starting his own business providing food on-the-go whilst having Percy (Anthony) around him more. The actors impress; Favreau has us sympathetic whenever things go wrong for him (his inability to use Twitter and his son teaching him shows how different generations work). He's full of heart and soul. Passion drives him forward. Seeing him progress as a human being keeps the film ticking. Leguizamo, Vergara and young Emjay Anothony support Favreau in one of the best rainy-day films of the year.
