The Hundred-Foot Journey is Now in Theaters – #100FootJourney

by Dawn Cullo

DreamWorks Pictures’ THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY is open in theaters everywhere now.  The movie stars Helen Mirren and is produced by Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey, Juliet Blake.

“The Hundred-Foot Journey” abounds with flavors that burst across the tongue. A stimulating triumph over exile, blossoming with passion and heart, it is a portrayal of two worlds colliding and one young man’s drive to find the comfort of home, in every pot, wherever he may be.

About “The Hundred-Foot Journey”

In “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch.
Kadam Family at the Market

Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France.

Kadam Family The Hundred-Foot Journey

Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant – the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin-starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren) gets wind of it.

Madam Mallory Market

Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own escalate into a heated battle between the two establishments until Hassan’s passion for French haute cuisine — and for Madame Mallory’s enchanting sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon) — combine with his mysteriously-delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Madame Mallory cannot ignore. At first Madame Mallory’s culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan’s gift as a chef and takes him under her wing.

I’ll be honest … this movie doesn’t look like one I’d see in theaters. My husband and I don’t get to see movies often without the kids, and this definitely isn’t one I’d take my kids to see.

The Hundred Foot Journey looks like a truly heart warming movie. Helen Mirren is an extraordinary actress who always brings such depth to the characters she portrays. I probably won’t get to see this in the theatre but will definitely catch it once it’s on DVD.
