The Hundred Foot Journey: The Food Feud Featurette

I've been following the making of The Hundred Foot Journey - the Helen Mirren film coming out next week on August 8th - sharing behind the scenes looks at production design and images from the French location courtesy of Sally Tharpe Rowles blog, Between Here and There. The link will take you to Sally's take on the book by Richard C. Morais. 

Today I'm sharing a short featurette/trailer combo featuring Oprah Winfrey and Steven Speilberg, both producers on the movie. They talk about that '100 foot journey' representing everything we go through, whether it's out of love or friendship, that you have to walk a distance to achieve something of value for yourself.

I think my favorite bit is the father, the owner of the Indian restaurant, played by the acclaimed Indian actor, Om Puri, when he tells Mirren "Enough of you! Always up there like a queen or something." A nice nod to Mirren's Academy Award winning role in The Queen.

The Hundred Foot Journey stars Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal, Juhi Chawla and Charlotte Le Bon, directed by Lasse Halstrom from script by Steven Knight based on book The Hundred Foot Journey by Richard C. Morais. 

Bon Appetit!
