Event Information

An emotionally scarred London chef struggles to keep it together in this formally extraordinary and beautifully acted single-take thriller from actor-turned-director Philip Barantini. We follow Andy, an emotionally damaged and drug addicted chef, played by an electrifying Stephen Graham, across one crazily busy night in his top London restaurant. He has to deal with acrimonious staff, difficult customers, an old adversary and the pressures of keeping a frenetic kitchen and busy restaurant floor going. 

A smart character study, a realistic slice of life and a vivid window into a highly pressurised and strange working world, Barantini’s film makes superb use of an excellent ensemble cast and terrific central performance to deliver something genuinely exciting.
