Go See Jon Favreau's Chef, This Weekend


If you're into food, or simply have a beating heart, then you're going to really, really love Jon Favreau's Chef, a winner of the Tribeca Film Festival's Audience Award and recently certified Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Quite possibly the feel-good movie of the year, Favreau brings together a star-studded cast to tell the story of Carl Casper (played by Favreau himself) and his triumphant rise from the ashes of a debilitating restaurant review from critic Ramsey Michel (Oliver Platt).

Other A-listers in the film include Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson, John Leguizamo, Bobby Cannavale, Dustin Hoffman, and Robert Downey Jr. Things to look forward to on this journey to self discovery: outstanding food porn, great music, and an impeccably researched script that nails everything about today's restaurant industry.
