Placing Bradley Cooper into the heat of the action as a hard-edged, no-nonsense chef who won’t give up on his pursuit of perfection, we watch as his character, Adam Jones, rustles up enough A-star dishes to propel him to the top, though hints of drug abuse and a murky past soon derail his dream, leaving his once-steadfast career in tatters.
Left licking his wounds – and no doubt his plate – Cooper’s adrenaline junkie relocates to London in the hope of a fresh start, where he will open up a restaurant of his own and set a new standard in the fine art of high-class dining. “I don’t want my restaurant to be a place where you come and eat,” his protagonist utters to a colleague. “I want people to sit at that table and be sick with longing.” Get a gist of his perfectionism now?
The Weinstein Company’s feature will have Cooper reteam with his American Sniper co-star Sienna Miller, while Uma Thurman, Daniel Bruhl, Emma Thompson, Lily James, Matthew Rhys, Omar Sy, Jamie Dornan and Ex Machina‘s Alicia Vikander round out the star-studded line-up.
Burnt will open in theaters on October 23.
Chef Adam Jones (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 he’ll need the best of the best on his side, including the beautiful Helene (Sienna Miller of Foxcatcher and American Sniper).
