We’re used to seeing her in her labcoat making puppy dog eyes at Benedict Cumberbatch’s detective, but besides Sherlock series three, Louise Brealey has a number of other projects up her sleeve.
One of them is new movie Delicious which has released its first trailer profiling the dysfunctional romance between a young French chef Jacques Fournier (Nico Rogner) and his troubled neighbour (Brealey).
Aspiring foodie Jacques is released from prison and arrives in London following the death of his mother, on a hunt to locate his father. Top of his list is volatile British chef, Victor Ellwood (Adrian Scarborough), who he knows had an affair with his mother.
After landing a job in Victor’s kitchen, Jacques soon meets his eccentric neighbours: feisty OAP Patti (Sheila Hancock) and the beguiling Stella, whom the newcomer plans to seduce with his talent in the kitchen. The only problem is she shows very little interest in Jacques and even less in food.
Jacques comes to realise the full extent of Stella’s instability when he returns home after being fired from his job to find her unconscious following a binge on junk food, booze and pills. Determined to help her, he refuses to leave her side until she eats something and sets about preparing a feast so inviting she cannot resist.
Delicious is written and directed by Tammy Riley-Smith and produced by Sherlock composer Michael Price. Take a look at the trailer below…
Despite playing on this year’s festival circuit, Delicious is yet to be given an official release date.
