Studio: First Run Features
Directors: Chris Hegedus, D.A. Pennebaker
MPAA Rating: N/A
From the makers of the documentary classics "Don't Look Back" and "The War Room," Pennebaker and Hegedus are simply the best — so when they turn their sights on the competition for the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France (MOF), France's Nobel Prize for pastry, you're in for a treat. Sixteen chefs whip up the most gorgeous, delectable, gravity-defying concoctions, and there is edge-of-the seat drama as they deliver their fantastical, spun-sugar desserts to the display table. The inevitable disasters prove both poignant and hilarious.
