DreamWorks Pictures’ The Hundred-Foot Journey will be available to own on Digital HD, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand December 2, and today we have a first look at producers Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey talking about the director Lasse Hallström’s big screen adaptation.
Based on the beloved, best-selling novel by Richard C. Morais, the film stars Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren (The Queen, Monsters University, The Debt).
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, 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.
