Vertigo Releasing has debuted the first trailer for the one-take feature ‘Boiling Point’ featuring Stephen Graham as a chef under pressure.
This is ‘Magic Friday’, the last Friday before Christmas and the busiest night of the year. Andy Jones, Head Chef at one of the top restaurants in London, is battling debts, addiction and an imploding personal life. The pressure is already on when health and safety services unexpectedly show up for inspection. Shot in a single take, in and out of a kitchen reaching boiling point.
The film is a one-take production with its expected shoot schedule halved to two days, in order to complete filming before lockdown commenced. Shooting wrapped just five days before the pandemic forced the government to shut down the film industry, making it the last film to be on set in March 2020. Nearly all of the post-production was completed remotely during the first lockdown.
Directed by Philip Barantini, the film also stars Jason Flemyng (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Snatch), Ray Panthaki (Colette, Marcella), BAFTA winner Malachi Kirby (The Devils, Small Axe) and Vinette Robinson.
