The Hundred Foot Journey

hundredfoot_journeyMy favorite movie of the year is The Hundred Foot Journey starring Helen Mirren, produced by Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg. Opening this weekend, the film is a beautiful story that tells the story of cultures coming together giving us an inside view of the competitive nature of the restaurant business. This story will warm your heart as it is a love story. Helen Mirren was brilliant as always in her role as a top, but fair minded, leading French restaurant owner.  It is interesting to me that two of the best movies of the year have dealt with food. I loved Chef also.  Great film – go see it!
