Oprah and Spielberg Produce The Hundred-Foot Journey

The Hundred-Foot Journey Trailer on Yahoo Movies

Did you know that it has been nearly 30 years since Oprah Winfrey made her big screen debut on the drama The Color Purple? It was directed by the incredible Steven Spielberg. The two have came together to produce The Hundred-Foot Journey. It’s based on the bestselling novel by Richard C. Morais… much different than The Color Purple. It’s a story of cultures clashing, forbidden love, and food.

This is already making me think of Julie & Julia.

*sigh*

Oh how I love that movie… and Julia Child!

Of course, Oprah is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and anything with Mr. Spielberg is a MUST SEE! I’m also a huge Helen Mirren fan who leads the cast. I absolutely loved her in Arthur. You know, the original Arthur that came out in 1981, with the amazing Dudley Moore and Liza Minnelli, was one of my dads absolute favorite movies. Has anyone seen it? If not, shame on you! It is a must see! I can remember watching it a hundred times when I was a kid. Anyways… oh my gosh, I get so side tracked! Check out the trailer below! Are you excited to see the film when it hits theaters August 8th?

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 all out war between the two establishments – until Hassan’s passion for French haute cuisine and for Mme. 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 Mme. Mallory cannot ignore. At first Mme. Mallory’s culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan’s gift as a chef and takes him 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, with marjoram and madras, it is a portrayal of two worlds colliding and one boy’s drive to find the comfort of home, in every pot, wherever he may be.

In DreamWorks Pictures’ “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” the opening of a new Indian restaurant in the south of France, next to a famous Michelin starred eatery, is nearly cause for an all-out war between the two establishments until Le Saule Pleureur’s icy proprietress Madame Mallory recognizes her rival’s undeniable brilliance for preparing masterful meals.
