Chef Slowik (Ralph Fiennes) is a world-renowned chef who runs the ultra-exclusive Hawthorne restaurant that is located on its own island with a tasting menu that runs $1,250 per person. Among the guests is Tyler (Nicholas Hoult), a huge foodie, who has invited Margot (Anya Taylor-Joy) last minute to join him for the evening.
Spoiling what comes next would ruin the outrageous fun and bleak, biting Satire that courses through the veins of THE MENU. It takes jabs at the low-hanging fruit of the 1% and sets its sights on a number of other targets we know all too well. Of course, this is before things start going completely off the rails into directions and material you will never expect. Some may find many of the stops the Film makes to be shocking or in bad taste, but it is clear that Emmy-winning Director Mark Mylod intended on making a provocative piece of cinematic decadence – as well as a Film that will leave you incredibly hungry.
At the centre of it all is Taylor-Joy, who walks the tight rope of tonal absurdity with razor-sharp precision. She is our gateway into the madness of THE MENU, and she relishes in alternating between having the time of her life and being frightened for her life. And who knew she could be so witty? Just solid work all-around for one of our greatest talents. Equally solid is Hong Chau (also at the Festival with The Whale), who plays Slowik’s assistant Elsa. She gets many of the Film’s best lines and moments, each one delivered more deliciously wicked than the last. Hoult plays obnoxious weasel well and a whole slew of recognizable Character Actors do their very best keeping up the Film’s momentum.
These great elements would be completely meaningless though if it was not for Fiennes. He brings a next-level energy to his certifiably deranged performance, reveling in being astute and well spoken in one breath and batshit crazy in the next. There is an additive quality to his work here, packing-in as much poignancy as he does poisonous barbs. I would even go so far as to call this his best performance ever; one that is substantially more terrifyingly unhinged than even his legendary work as Lord Voldermort.
THE MENU screens as follows at TIFF ’22:

George Miller also will direct this latest installment which will star Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Hemsworth and Tom Burke.Taylor-Joy has been prepping mentally and physically for some time to prepare for this. Cannot wait to see her carry this Film!
As the world fell, young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus. Sweeping through the Wasteland they come across the Citadel presided over by The Immortan Joe. While the two Tyrants war for dominance, Furiosa must survive many trials as she puts together the means to find her way home.
Taylor-Joy was most recently seen in Edgar Wright’s “Last Night in Soho” and Robert Eggers’ “The Northman.” She also played the lead in the romantic comedy “Emma,” based on the Jane Austen novel. Her additional features include the sci-fi thrillers “Split” from M. Night Shyamalan, and his follow up “Glass,” in which she reprised her role from the previous film. She also starred as a chess prodigy in the massively successful miniseries “The Queen’s Gambit.”
Hemsworth is right at home with high-octane action, having starred in the “Avengers” and “Thor” films as well as the recent “Extraction.” His other film credits include “Bad Times at the El Royale,” “12 Strong,” “In the Heart of the Sea,” “Rush,” “Snow White and the Huntsman,” and “Star Trek,” among many others.
Burke is perhaps best-known for his award-nominated role in Joanna Hogg’s film “The Souvenir,” as well as playing the lead in the popular UK crime series “C.B. Strike.” He also starred as Athos in the BBC series “The Musketeers,” appeared in such feature films as Nicholas Winding Refn’s “Only God Forgives,” and played famed filmmaker Orson Welles in David Fincher’s Oscar-winning “Mank.”

Miller’s behind-the-scenes creative team includes such longtime Australian collaborators as production designer Colin Gibson, editor Margaret Sixel, sound mixer Ben Osmo, costume designer Jenny Beavan and makeup designer Lesley Vanderwalt, each of whom won an Oscar for their work on “Mad Max: Fury Road,” as well as first assistant director PJ Voeten and second unit director and stunt coordinator Guy Norris. The director of photography is Simon Duggan (“Hacksaw Ridge,” “The Great Gatsby”).
More details to come. Warner Bros. Pictures Canada will release.
Aspiring fashion designer Ellie (Thomasin McKenzie) leaves the English countryside of Cornwall to attend fashion school in London. Ellie loves the 1960s and to her luck, when she moves into her new flat she can mysteriously enter into ’60s Soho. It’s there she encounters fashionable aspiring singer Sandy (Anya Taylor-Joy). However, Ellie quickly learns that the glamour of the era isn’t what it appears to be. She gets pulled into the grim life Sandy was forced into until the past starts haunting Ellie into the present.
Director and Co-Writer Edgar Wright swings us into the dazzling world of London in the ’60s, with the help of outstanding set and costume design. During Ellie’s first foray, Wright uses mirrors to show how Ellie and Sandy are separated but attached. It’s magical to watch these mirror scenes, especially when they become more sinister. He spins this nostalgic fun into a Psychological Horror filled with terrifying ghosts. Wright uses lighting, sound and creative camera work that creates tension, suspense and scares.
Wright along with Co-Writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns have crafted a psychological horror centred around the horrors an aspiring female singer in the 60s, and even today would experience. Making it an examination of a moment in time when women would be conned and forced into a life where they were treated as currency. Without giving too much away, this is also a story of women taking back their agency.
Sandy’s story is being witnessed by modern-day Ellie, along with its audience. And Ellie, like us, iscarrying the beliefs of today into what she sees in the 60s. McKenzie excels at showing the increment changes in Ellie’s personality changes. She begins as a joyful, innocent girl heading to the big city. Once she visits the 60s, she becomes emboldened. And once we hit the third act, McKenzie shows the terror of Ellie’s daily life. It’s a feat to accomplish and McKenzie excels at every turn.
She’s joined by the force that is Taylor-Joy. Her undeniable talent to express emotion with one single glance is fully utilized. In the beginning, she shows Sandy’s determination and hope. As time passes, Sandy’s life becomes a prison run by her manager Jack, an impressive performance from Matt Smith. With this, Taylor-Joy makes us witness the light in Sandy’s eyes disappear. Additionally, there is a delightful performance from Diana Rigg as Ellie’s rulemaking live-in landlord.
Last Night in Soho is a Psychological Horror that builds tension and gives scares. It’s got a strong central storyline, pitch-perfect performances and has ample amounts of creative flair.
A new Trailer and Poster have arrived for Edgar Wright‘s LAST NIGHT IN SOHO starring Thomasin Mackenzie and Anya Taylor-Joy.

Edgar Wright’s psychological thriller about a young girl, passionate in fashion design, who is mysteriously able to enter the 1960s where she encounters her idol, a dazzling wannabe singer. But 1960s London is not what it appears, and time seems to fall apart with shady consequences…
