Jon Favreau returns to the indie territory of Swingers, and serves up both a charming comedy and a moving, redemptive family drama in Chef. When Carl Casper (Favreau) is fired from his restaurant job in LA, he returns to Miami with his tail in between his legs. Renovating a food truck he dubs El Jefe Cubanos, his intention is to drive to LA and resurrect his gastronomic career. But the experience with his new colleagues, and a reconnection with his son, leads him to enjoy his new venture on its own terms, and reassess his priorities, in this constantly funny, heart-warming drama featuring a host of famous stars, including Robert Downey Jr., Dustin Hoffman, and Scarlett Johansson.  A film from the heart, and the stomach.

Screening supported by Lionsgate.Lionsgate
