Burnt (Directed by: John Wells; Written by: Steven Knight and Michael Kalesniko)

Chef Adam Jones had it all - and lost it. A two-star Michelin rockstar with the bad habits to match, the former enfant terrible of the Paris restaurant scene did everything different every time out, and only ever cared about the thrill of creating explosions of taste. Now, to land his own kitchen and that third elusive Michelin star he will need the best of the best on his side, including beautiful Helene.

Starring: Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Daniel Brühl, Omar Sy, Matthew Rhys, Stephen Campbell Moore, Emma Thompson, Uma Thurman, Alicia Vikander, Lily James, Sarah Greene

My thoughts on this film: I found this to be a fun movie! All the food looks delicious. The meticulous preparation and presentation of all the dishes make them look mouth watering. Bradley Cooper is outstanding as Adam Jones. Cooper portrays the chef's vulnerability, aggression, and attention to detail flawlessly. Sienna Miller is brilliant as Helene. They both seem to have great chemistry on every movie they make together. Omar Sy is great as Michel, which was a surprise as I am more used to seeing him in French movies rather than American ones. Emma Thompson is spectacular as Dr. Rosshilde, but then again, she is great in every movie.
Burnt is a must watch for all foodies and aspiring chefs. But even if you are not one, you should go and feast your eyes on some delectable food!
