HELEN MIRREN stars as the rather less than friendly owner of a posh restaurant who does not like the idea of an Indian restaurant opening opposite hers in The Hundred-Foot Journey which is being screened in the Town Hall Theatre this evening at 8pm.
Directed by Lasse Hallström (Chocolat ) and based on Richard C Morais’ novel, the film centres on Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal ), a brilliant cook who moves to a quaint village in the South of France to open an Indian restaurant. He is undeterred that only 100 feet opposite stands a Michelin starred classical French eatery. However when he meets the icy proprietress, Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren ), Hassan finds he may have bitten off more than he can chew.
The screening is a Galway Film Society event in association with access>CINEMA Bealtaine Film Tour. Tickets are available from the Town Hall on 091 - 569777 or www.tht.ie
