Post-screening Q&A with producers Hester Ruoff & Bart Ruspoli

It’s the busiest night of the year at a trendy London restaurant, and disaster is looming. The pressure rises, as the charismatic head chef scrambles to salvage the situation.

“Audaciously filmed in a single take, Philip Barantini’s low-budget drama serves up a brilliant performance from Graham as a chef on the edge… utterly immersive …  first and foremost a gripping and gritty drama in which the spiralling descent of the narrative is enhanced and enriched by uninterrupted digital photography.” Mark Kermode, Observer
