THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY (Theatrical Release USA 2014)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì 

The Hundred-Foot Journey—creative, fresh, inspiring—educates and teaches beautiful life lessons without losing its complete dedication to a movie’s primary purpose…to entertain and entertain well. The casting department needs special recognition for perfectly putting together one of the most well-coordinated casts to depict two completely different cultures perfectly.  The movie is worth addition to the home video library and easily earns more than one watch over many years. A clean, decent, integrity-filled movie that offers terrific solutions to difficult challenges.
