Promise of Tomorrow
January 13th, 2013 - Toast
Directed by S.J. Clarkson
Written by Lee Hall and Nigel Slater
Starring Oscar Kennedy, Helena Bonham Carter and Freddie Highmore
Toast is about famous English chef Nigel Slater. As a child he loves his mother dearly, despite her extreme lack of culinary talent, which Nigel possesses and wants desperately to develop. His mother falls ill and dies leaving him with his coarse and distant father. After the loss of his wife, Nigel’s father hires Mrs. Joan potter to clean the house, a very common lady, and quickly becomes taken with her. Much to Nigel’s chagrin, Joan becomes a permanent fixture in his life, and he must deal with her while he learns all there is to know about cooking and himself. It was pretty good. I was expecting something a little more comedic and it turned out to be a very deep drama. It kind of got depressing… Helena Bonham Carter played Joan Potter and was pretty awesome. The character was just a total bitch. You come to hate her more and more as the film goes on. I was hoping she’d turn out to be nice once Nigel accepted her, but she just never turns off her malice it seems. Freddie Highmore is all grown up and it’s kind of weird. He’s such an adorable kid, and none of that adorableness has gone anywhere, it’s just weird! But he’s always been a very talented young man. He played this role as wonderfully as he has everything else he’s done. Speaking of talented young men, Oscar Kennedy is one to keep an eye on. Overall, the picture was entertaining, It just left a little bit of an empty feeling afterwards. Perhaps, it was just the empty expectations of Joan’s character softening. She was just one of those people in the world, who can be fake until the last drop. I thought the film was good, but i’ll say it wasn’t really one of my favorites. I guess it’ll take a second glance for me, but decide for yourselves! Film is subjective, just like all art, so Y’all should check it out.
