The Scars of Getting Brûlé

Bradley Cooper.

Now that I have your full attention, the increasingly dynamic actor has literally learned new tricks for his most recent film: Burnt.

The heat of a world-class kitchen and its painful wounds with and without knives and boiling water has produced challenges for his character that requires laser-focus, street smarts and determination as strong and ambitious as the Eiffel Tower. Mr. Cooper, once again sharing the silver screen with the entertainingly beautiful Sienna Miller (American Sniper) and a supporting cast of wonderful up-and-comers (Alicia Vikander, Daniel Brühl), is the movie industry’s response to the latest top-shelf food craze in America (Food Network, Top Chef, celebrity chefs and their many shows, cooking competitions, etc.). An added bonus is the film takes place in Paris, which instantly adds an alluring quality to the story.

As Nelly would say, “It’s gettin’ hot in here…”

Like any delicious dish, the most minute details make all the difference between something sizzling and memorable and something lukewarm and forgettable.

How will Burnt’s fantastic cast mix together?

We’ll find out when the movie is served October 23rd.
