Mouth-watering metaphors

After a slew of blockbuster movies like IRON MAN 2 (2010) and COWBOYS & ALIENS (2011), Jon Favreau returns with a much smaller and more personal film. CHEF tells the tale of a critic who has to reinvent himself and rediscover his love of food, after a scathing restaurant review and a public bust-up with a restaurant critic puts him out of a job. Casting himself in the lead role, Favreau uses the restaurant world as a metaphor for the film industry in this charming and entertaining critique of the mindset and focus that defines Hollywood today.
