The Hundred-Foot Journey is kind of an opposite of recent sleeper hit The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel – an Indian family comes to Western Europe and cultures clash. A superb cast and some really elegant food make for an intriguing recipe.
DreamWorks’ The Hundred-Foot Journey is the story of how an Indian family’s decision to open an Indian restaurant across the road from a Michelin-starred classical French restaurant affects the family’s son, the French restaurant’s proprietress, the family and the region. It’s a story about how cultures may initially clash, but a bit of insight, open-mindedness and just the right amount of spice – embodied in the Indian family’s son – can bring them together.
The Hundred-Foot Journey stars Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal and Charlotte Le Bon, and opens on August 8th. Check out the luscious trailer after the jump.
