One of our picks from this year’s SXSW festival, Jon Favreau turned down Iron Man 3 to make this movie and it was a great decision. Getting back to the spirit of his early independent movie, Chef tells the story of chef Roy Choi, who after a calamitous reaction to a bad review, quits his job and goes out on the road by starting a food truck. Full of heart passion, Chef features a few entertaining cameos along the way, plus great perfrmances from Jon Favreau, John Leguizamo, Bobby Cannavale and Emjay Anthony and hits theatres May 9th in the States and June 18th in the UK.
