I’m going to say it now…Chef will be the indie movie of the summer. Great cast, concept, and direction that plays at my feelings as well as my stomach. Director/lead actor Jon Favreau has free creative reign once again in this film and not only does it seem like he is loving it, but critics as well (100% RottenTomatoes(only shown at SXSW so it will have more reviews soon)). Besides Favreau Chef stars John Leguizamo, Bobby Cannavale, Scarlett Johansson, Dustin Hoffman, Sofia Vergara, Oliver Platt, and Robert Downey Jr.

The film follows the Chef Carl Casper who loves the creativity of bringing flavors together along with presentation. When his job takes away his creativity in the kitchen he quits. To not only get his passion for food back, but to be closer to his family he launches a food truck. There is where he shares his experience, passion, and love with his son, ex-wife, and friend.
