Synopsis

“If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen” is a saying that becomes all too real in Phillip Barantini‘s tour-de-force sizzler BOILING POINT.


Chef Andy is under stress: his top restaurant has been stripped of two stars, all the tables are overbooked because of the holiday season, and his former mentor, a culinary icon, has shown up unannounced accompanied by a respected food critic. As the mounting pressure brings the mood of his team members to the boil, how long will Andy manage to keep it all together?


Shot in a single tale BOILING POINT is an entertainingly gripping and breathless journey through the hustle and bustle of a workplace populated by recognisable, believable characters. Alongside an outstanding ensemble cast, Stephen Graham’s electrifying performance alone merits three Michelin stars.
