Looking for Something to Watch? Try 'The Hundred-Foot Journey'

Posted on Saturday, August 8th, 2020


I know some people who regularly read the same books because they're so enjoyable to spend time with, even when one knows how they turn out. I have the same thing with some movies, and one of them is The Hundred-Foot Journey, starring Helen Mirren, Manish Dayal, Charlotte Le Bon, Om Puri and directed by Lasse Hallstrom.

The movie originally opened in theaters on August 8, 2014, and features Helen Mirren as the owner of a classy French restaurant who must contend with an Indian restaurant opening directly across the road. The immediate and obvious clash ensues, but beneath that is the story of one of the sons of the new family (Dayal) pursuing his love of cooking, and how his dreams and ambitions intersect with Mirren's restaurant, including one of her employees, played by Le Bon.

As I mentioned in my recent review of the movie, this is one of those movies that doesn't demand your attention and make you enjoy it through obvious means. Rather, it does its thing, and waits for you to notice. Whether you do or not is a function of you, and it may require multiple viewings to notice. Those that are impatient with movies may not be willing to give it that kind of a chance, but those that do will be rewarded with a pleasant story performed by a good cast.

You'll likely come away hungry for Indian cuisine, and you may find yourself wanting to come back to it from time to time, just like a good book!

Ways to Watch the Movie

The Hundred-Foot Journey is available on Netflix right now, and it's likely on other streaming services as well. I recommend buying it on disc so that you can enjoy it whenever you want (have you ever sat down to watch something, and then find out it's gone from your streaming service?).
