Another day, another movie about food. This time: Chef.
I’ll be honest with you. I’ve been quite skeptical about this movie in the beginning, but it turned out to be pretty good.
Chef is obviously about a chef, Carl Casper (Jon Favreau), who works a prestigious restaurant in Los Angeles, but after being pushed too far by his boss and a bad review from a critique, he quits and has a melt down that puts him a bad light. As he tries to put his life back together, he takes a trip to Miami with his son and his ex-wife (Sofia Vergara). Here, he decides to buy a food truck to create and cook the food he always wanted to cook. With the help of his best friend, his son and his ex-wife, his business gains success and popularity in no time.
I liked this movie because it shows that sometimes success doesn’t mean doing what you like and that you sometimes have to give it up in order to achieve happiness and freedom to do what you love.
