QUICK TAKE:
Drama: A once promising but then disgraced chef tries to make a comeback in the business.
PLOT:
Several years ago, Adam Jones (BRADLEY COOPER) was at the top of his game as the head chef of a popular Parisian restaurant. But his ego, demanding ways and hard-partying lifestyle with then girlfriend and fellow drug addict Anne Marie (ALICIA VIKANDER) ultimately resulted in his career demise as he alienated his friends and coworkers. After serving a self-imposed exile of several years of shucking one million oysters in New Orleans, Adam has traveled to London where he wants to start anew. And his target is a restaurant located in a swanky hotel run by Tony (DANIEL BRUHL), a man who watched Adam self-destruct in the past. By inviting a feared food critic to Tony's restaurant, Adam essentially blackmails Tony to hire him to run the place, and Adam then sets out to recruit his kitchen staff, all while being drug tested weekly by Dr. Rosshilde (EMMA THOMPSON) to appease his investors.

Among those he includes are former coworkers such as Michel (OMAR SY), whose competitive restaurant Adam sabotaged in the past, as well as Max (RICCARDO SCAMARCIO) who's just gotten out of prison. New members include young cook David (SAM KEELEY) and Adam's most prized catch, Helene (SIENNA MILLER). She's the single mom to young Lily (LEXI BENBOW-HART) and the sous chef at another restaurant where Adam manages to get her fired so she'll work for him. One person Adam doesn't get is Reece (MATTHEW RHYS), a former friend and coworker who got burned in Adam's meltdown and now runs a rival restaurant.

Still operating with a big ego and his demanding and perfectionist ways, Adam works hard to turn his kitchen into a hit and earn him his third Michelin star, all while finding himself starting to fall for Helene.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
