How to watch Boiling Point in the UK – is the Stephen Graham movie on Netflix?
Stephen Graham stars as an overworked head chef in the single-shot movie.
UK fans desperate for a quick and easy way to watch Stephen Graham’s BAFTA-nominated performance in Boiling Point are in luck: the movie has finally landed on Netflix.
Based on the 2019 short film of the same name, Boiling Point stars Graham (Peaky Blinders, Venom 2) as an overworked head chef at a fashionable London restaurant.
The action unfolds on one of the busiest nights of the year, and in one single continuous shot we watch as Jones' shift becomes increasingly chaotic, juggling a shock visit from a health and safety inspector, tensions between his staff members and some very difficult customers.
The Boiling Point star was nominated for Leading Actor at this year's BAFTA Film Awards. He's up alongside Benedict Cumberbatch for The Power of the Dog, Adeel Akhtar for Ali & Ava, Leonardo DiCaprio for Don't Look Up, Mahershala Ali for Swan Song, and eventual winner Will Smith for King Richard.
After debuting at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival last year, Boiling Point was released in cinemas in the UK earlier this year, before becoming available to buy or rent on various digital platforms (read more on this below).
But now Boiling Point has become available to watch online. Read on for everything you need to know.
