"Foodie culture gets hilariously torched as a celebrity chef, acted to pretentious perfection by Ralph Fiennes, holds his customers, except for a deliciously defiant Anya Taylor-Joy, to the fire at his restaurant from hell. It’s all delectably unhinged."ABC News
The Menu is a deliciously dark comedy set in an extremely high-end restaurant that’s serving up a little more than the $1,250 per person tasting menu. Written by the crack team who crafted Succession and starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Fiennes, and Nicholas Hoult, you’ll delight in the details of this barbed masterpiece, best served beneath our summer skies, naturally. The film follows a young couple travels to a remote island to eat at an exclusive restaurant where the chef has prepared a lavish menu, with some shocking surprises. Delightfully dark and searingly on point, The Menu is a film best served at OpenAir.
