The Hundred-Foot Journey
You and a guest are invited to a special advance screening of DreamWorks Pictures’ new movie The Hundred-Foot Journey, starring Helen Mirren and directed by Lasse Hallström. Discussion with producer Juliet Blake will follow.

In The Hundred-Foot Journey, 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, the 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 to an all-out war 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.

Directed by Academy Award-nominee Lasse Hallström and starring Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal, and Charlotte Le Bon, The Hundred-Foot Journey 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.

The Hundred-Foot Journey, rated PG, will be released in theaters on August 8, 2014.
