Debuting in UAE theaters tonight, Burnt stars Academy Award Nominee Bradley Cooper as Adam Jones, a rising star in the culinary world who had it all in the kitchen – and in life – before he lost it. The movie follows the broken, yet extremely talented, chef as he moves to London in an attempt to pick up the pieces and redeem himself for a chance to earn his third Michelin star.
Directed by John Wells (August: Osage County), Cooper is complemented by an admirable supporting cast, including Sienna Miller as Adam’s love interest Helene. Foodies will yearn to dine at Adam’s restaurant in real life, and Cooper adds a raw and real dimension to the character that’s guaranteed to move you.
On the surface, Burnt moves at a thrilling and quick-fire pace, but at the heart it’s a comedic and emotional story about the love of food, the love between people, and the power of second chances.
