Sometimes the journey of a lifetime begins with a single step. Dork Shelf and DreamWorks Pictures are proud to team up to send you on one of the greatest journeys of the summer. Enter for a chance to win a pair of passes to an advance screening of THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY (in theatres August 8th) in TORONTO, CALGARY, EDMONTON, or VANCOUVER on Wednesday, August 6th at 7:00pm.
Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant – the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin-starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Academy Award® winner Helen Mirren), gets wind of it.
Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own escalate into a heated battle between the two establishments until Hassan’s passion for French haute cuisine – and for Madame Mallory’s enchanting sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon) – combine with his mysteriously-delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Madame Mallory cannot ignore. Madame Mallory eventually recognizes her culinary rival’s gift as a chef and takes Hassan under her wing.
The Hundred-Foot Journey abounds with flavors that burst across the tongue. A stimulating triumph over exile, blossoming with passion and heart, it is a portrayal of two worlds colliding and one young man’s drive to find the comfort of home, in every pot, wherever he may be.
The Hundred-Foot Journey is presented by DreamWorks Pictures and Reliance Entertainment and directed by Academy Award® nominee Lasse Hallström. The film is produced by Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg, Academy Award nominee Oprah Winfrey and Juliet Blake. The screenplay is written by Academy Award nominee Steven Knight, based on the novel The Hundred-Foot Journey by Richard C. Morais.
