Video: Oprah and Steven Spielberg talk 'Hundred Foot Journey'

The Fourth of July may be upon us but The Hundred Foot Journey features a very different type of fireworks with the ultimate culture clash between dueling French and Indian restaurants.

Based on the international best-seller by Richard C. Morais, the film—out Aug. 8—follows the journey of the Kadams, an Indian family that opens a boisterous eatery just 100 feet from a classic French restaurant owned by a snobbish culinarian (Helen Mirren). Their culinary contest threatens to bubble over until gifted gourmand Hassan (Manish Dayal) and charming sous-chef Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon) meld their cultures together in the ultimate fusion of flavors.

”It’s a bit of a fable, but a fable that wants to be realistically told,” director Lasse Hallström told EW of the film earlier this year. ”It’s a melting pot of languages, of food, and of people.”

You might think there are no three places further apart culinarily speaking than Grant Achatz’s hyper-molecular gastronomy mecca Alinea in Chicago, a mom-and-pop Mexican eatery in Arizona, and a family-owned country restaurant in the middle of Iowa. But the upcoming documentary Spinning Plates is out to prove that no matter how fancy or bare bones a kitchen is, running a restaurant takes a special kind of family. “Food is at once art, at once craft, and at once science,” Achatz says in the exclusive trailer below.

But more than that, food is relationships, as evidenced in the stories of Achatz’s cancer recovery, Breitbach’s in Iowa rebuilding after a fire, and the heartbreaking work of the immigrant family running La Cocina de Gabby in Arizona. “Every customer is a guest in my house,” La Cocina de Gabby’s owner says. Check out the trailer below to be a guest in three of the most unique restaurants in the country.
