Blu-ray Release: The Hundred-Foot Journey

December 9, 2014

The Hundred-Foot Journey Blu-ray

Last week, Touchstone Pictures released The Hundred-Foot Journey on Blu-ray.  When young chef Hassan (Manish Dayal) moves from India to France, his father (Om Puri) buys an old property to open their own restaurant.  The only problem is that they are a hundred feet across from uptight Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), who operates a classic French restaurant, and the two cultures end up clashing.

Based on the bestseller by Richard C. Morais, The Hundred-Foot Journey is a feel good movie, and there is an inherent sweetness to how the characters come together.  This is a solidly acted and very enjoyable film that should be savoured like a good meal, a piece of lusciously photographed and delightfully entertaining cinematic comfort food that left me smiling.  You can read my full review right here.

The Blu-ray includes a conversation with producers Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey, as well as three featurettes.

The Hundred-Foot Journey is 122 minutes and rated PG.
