CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of audio film review for “The Menu,” featuring Ralph Fiennes and Anya Taylor-Joy in a social satire about a Chef and his unique multi-course meal plan, in theaters on November 18th.

The setting is a private island, where world famous chef Julian (Ralph Fiennes) presents a multi-course and pretentious gourmet meal for an exclusive clientele, who have spent five figures for the privilege. This includes Tyler (Nicholas Hoult), a weasly food fan boy and his date Margot (Anya Taylor-Joy), who doesn’t understand the fuss. The rest of the diners are a mini Gilligan’s Island, including the movie star (John Leguizamo), the food critic (Janet McTeer), the millionaire & his wife (Reed Birney and Judith Light) and some background tech bros. As each course is served, there is a realization that Chef Julian has brought them together for a reason, and that means danger is also on the menu.
