Burnt, coming October 23, 2015 from the Weinstein Company, tells the story of a fallen Chef Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) trying to regain his place. In the three clips below, he rallies everyone in the kitchen, tries to make friends with an old foe, and displays the arrogance that led to his downfall in the first place. Bradley Cooper displays an energy and charisma here that makes one hope that the chef will succeed in his efforts, no matter what came before.
The movie was written by Steven Knight and Michael Kalesniko and directed by John Wells. In addition to Bradley Cooper, it stars Sienna Miller, Omar Sy, Daniel Brühl, Matthew Rhys, Uma
Thurman and Emma Thompson
“Yes Chef” shows the high-speed, high-stress environment behind the scenes in a busy restaurant. Chef Adam is trying to make things go right by sheer force of will and hop:
“Regrets” is a look at one of the many enemies the chef made in the past and must, somehow, reconcile with if he is to have a chance at coming back.
“He’s a Chef” apparently excuses rudeness and interference–for a while.
Synopsis for Burnt
Chef Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) had it all – and lost it. A two-star Michelin rockstar with the bad habits to match, the former enfant terrible of the Paris restaurant scene did everything different every time out, and only ever cared about the thrill of creating explosions of taste. To land his own kitchen and that third elusive Michelin star though, he’ll need the best of the best on his side, including the beautiful Helene (Sienna Miller). BURNT is a remarkably funny and emotional story about the love of food, the love between two people, and the power of second chances.
