Additional Info

Director Jon Favreau changes pace from his blockbusters like Iron Man, returning to a more personal comedy in the vein of his screenwriting breakthrough Swingers. Favreau plays a chef who gets fired by his restaurant’s owner (Dustin Hoffman) after running afoul of an influential critic (Oliver Platt). Favreau’s chef reinvents himself in a food truck on a cross-country trip. The film is loaded with laughs and memorable supporting performances by Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, Bobby Cannavale, Emjay Anthony, Amy Sedaris, and Scarlett Johansson. This celebration of food, creativity and being true to yourself serves as a delightful start to Montclair’s festival in advance of the film’s nationwide release in May 2014. 

After the screening, Party ticket holders are invited to join us for an Opening Night Reception inside the Wellmont Theater. Enjoy free-flowing drinks, delicious food, and inspired conversation as we celebrate the return of MFF.
