The Menu

The Menu: Directed by Mark Mylod. With Ralph Fiennes, Anya Taylor-Joy, Nicholas Hoult, Hong Chau. A young couple travels to a remote island to eat at an exclusive restaurant where the chef has prepared a lavish menu, with some shocking surprises.

Oh it’s a mockery of the stuck up foodies and food bros that inhabit nearly every restaurant you’ve ever been to that’s required a dress code of some sort. Anya Tyalor-Joy is fantastic as always, with Nicholas Hoult and Ralph Fiennes doing a fantastic job as brining her character to the forefront of the film.

I actually watched The Whale not too long after this, and Hong Chau is in both of them, but I didn’t recognize that at all until someone else mentioned she was having a good summer with her films. In ‘The Menu’ she’s a severe maitre de with a cult like devoting to Chef, but in The Whale she’s playing a woman that’s not doing well in life at all. Maybe I need to find more of her work?
