Seventy-year-old widower Ben Whittaker has discovered that retirement isn't all it's cracked up to be. Seizing an opportunity to get back in the game, he becomes a senior intern at an online fashion site, founded and run by Jules Ostin.
Carl Casper is an acclaimed chef with a family life that seems as decaying as his artistic freedom. Those frustrations boil over into a raucous viral-videoed public confrontation against a restaurant critic who panned his cooking of food that his boss ordered him to make against his instincts. Now with his career ruined, Carl's ex-wife offers an unorthodox solution in Miami: refit an old food truck to offer quality cooking on his own terms. Now with his young son, Percy, and old colleague, Martin, helping, Carl takes a working trip across America with that truck to rediscover his gastronomic passion. With Percy's tech savvy and Martin's enthusiasm, Carl finds that he is creating a traveling sensation on the way home. In doing so, Carl discovers he is serving up more than simply food, but also a deeper connection with his life and his family that is truly delicious in its own way. Written by

The BBQ place in the movie, is Franklin's BBQ in Austin, which regularly sells out before noon, and has long lines of customers waiting to get in. See more »
There is some disconnect with the positioning of the sleeping Percy and his grandpa. First he is slumped on the seat with grandpa's arm over him and next shot he is snuggled on grandpa's chest and a little while later he is even higher on grandpa. See more »
One of the best movies presented at SXSW this year. Hands down. Favreau's character converges a spotlight on the faceless critics who take themselves too seriously and tear down others in pursuit of their own notoriety; an epidemic in this digital day in age as harsh ideals are spammed across the internet with little recourse.
Backed by his star studded cast, Favreau pours his heart and soul into this movie and takes us on a whirlwind trek across the US to pursue passion through a foodies opus. We're inundated with hours of perfectly crafted dishes, social media faux pas, self realization and the path to finding true happiness. Take the Road Trip with Chef and enjoy a film that lets you leave the theater feeling full of love, life and in pursuit of the nearest Franklin's BBQ.
