Solid cooking flick!
Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) is a chef who destroyed his career with drugs and diva behavior. He cleans up and returns to London, determined to redeem himself by spearheading a top restaurant that can gain three Michelin stars.
It's a solid compelling culinary drama with very good performace by Bradley Cooper. I think the average viewer will enjoy the film - it feels real and it's a story of a human being that is not perfect and tries to fight for his spot in the business again. On the downside. Unpleasan main character, poor script and clichés. Nevertheless, a well cooked entertainment. 3/5
