United States 2015 77 mins.

Fiery French chef Georges Perrier is on a crusade to save his world-renowned 40-year-old Philadelphia restaurant Le Bec-Fin from closing. For decades, Perrier was on top of the world and Le Bec-Fin was consistently rated as one of the best restaurants in the country. But times and tastes have changed: what was once cutting edge is now out of favor. Frankel captures the mastery in the kitchen and charisma on the dining room floor, and has us rooting for a determined, tragi-comic figure and his quixotic fight to keep his cherished culinary traditions alive. Interviews with such legends as Thomas Keller and Daniel Boulud capture the plight of an artist whose passion remains undimmed.
