Burnt stars Bradley Cooper (American Sniper) as Adam Jones, who left high school at 16 and headed to Paris to learn the culinary arts. He was a quick study and something of a sensation. But all that sudden success went directly to his ego, and that, in turn, sent him down the path of excess, drinking, drugs and overall debauchery that ruined his reputation.
Now, though, he is looking to rebuild and has his eye on opening his own restaurant in London, with hopes he can score those all important Michelin Guide stars. But can he stay out of his own way? Or will his bad boy side take him down again?
The cast also includes the likes of Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina), Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades Of Grey), Uma Thurman ((Nymphomaniac), Lily James (Cinderella), Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks), Daniel Brühl (Rush), Matthew Rhys (Brothers & Sisters), Omar Sy (X-Men: Days Of Future Past) and Cooper's American Sniper (2014) co-star Sienna Miller.
Burnt will arrive in UK cinemas on 16 October.
