DreamWorks has released the first trailer, poster, and images for the drama The Hundred-Foot Journey. The story centers on the Kadam family, who set up an Indian restaurant in a small village in the south of France, and begin a rivalry with the nearby classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren). However, this rivalry eventually turns into friendship as the two establishments begin to learn and appreciate the other’s cuisine. If the film looks like it’s based on an Oprah-approved book, that’s because it is. She’s producing the film along with Steven Spielberg, who previously worked with Winfrey on The Color Purple. As for the film, it looks like it could be this year’s The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, i.e. a nice movie for older people.
