(Helen Mirren)

In The Hundred-Foot Journey, Oscar winner Helen Mirren puts her comedic chops on display as a crusty restaurateur in a food feud with a wannabe rival. Two of the biggest names in showbiz, Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg, saw the project’s potential and produced it for DreamWorks Pictures.

They pack up and leave in search of a more peaceful life in France, but soon after their arrival they discover that the owner of an existing restaurant will oppose their plans to start an eatery of their own with all her might.

Directed by Lasse Hallström in 2014, The Hundred-Foot Journey also stars Om Puri and Manish Dayal.
