Saban Films has unveiled a trailer for a brilliant-looking movie which is called Boiling Point. The movie takes place over the course of one night in a restaurant kitchen as an emotionally battered London chef tries to keep it together and the movie was shot in a single take, which is quite amazing when you see how fast-paced the story is.
The movie has an excellent cast that is led by Stephen Graham, who stars as Chef Andy Jones, along with Vinette Robinson, Jason Flemyng, Alice Feetham, Malachi Kirby, Izuka Hoyle, and Alice Feetham.
On the busiest night of the year at one of the hottest restaurants in London, the charismatic, commanding head chef Andy Jones (Stephen Graham) balances along a knife’s edge as multiple personal & professional crises threaten to destroy everything he’s worked for. A surprise visit from a health & safety inspector sets the staff on edge as the overbooked hotspot begins to fill with guests. Jones alternately berates and cajoles his diverse staff, trying his best to diffuse tensions between management and his crew, while catering to the ridiculous demands of customers.
The movie is described as a “smart character study, a realistic part of life and a clear window into a highly pressurized and strange working world, Barantini’s movie makes excellent use of its formal conceit, an excellent ensemble cast, and terrific central performance to deliver something genuinely nerve-jangling and exciting.”
I love such movies with a story that revolves around chefs and cooking, and Boiling Point seems like a movie that is going to be amazing. It’s directed by Philip Barantini and Saban Films will release it in select US theaters on November 19th, 2021, and on VOD on November 23rd.
