'Cooking With Stella' In Canadian Theatres on March 19

After a run at the latest Toronto International Film Festival, the comedy Cooking with Stella will have a theatrical release in Canada on March 19, 2010. The following is a presentation of the film's synopsis and trailer.


Stella Elizabeth Matthews (Seema Biswas) has been a cook in the Canadian High Commission in New Delhi for 30 years. She is brilliant as a cook, and brilliant at creatively padding her salary – with a few pilfered items, some minor overcharging, and a special phone-­‐order duty free business. A newly posted Canadian diplomat (Lisa Ray) and her husband Michael (Don McKellar) arrive with their baby (Alexiane Perreault). After an initial jolt when Stella learns that Michael will be staying home as “diplomatic housewife” while Maya goes off to work, everything goes swimmingly for Stella.
Michael was a chef in Ottawa and he is longing to learn authentic Indian cooking. Stella agrees to be his “cooking guru”. But Stella’s cozy domestic set-­‐up implodes when Tannu (Shriya Saran), an honest nanny, joins the household, and threatens to expose Stella’s deceptions. Eventutally Stella wins Tannu’s full cooperation (and then some!). This unlikely partnership embarks on a much grander, riskier scam, which seems to bring disaster.

Tannu (Shriya Saran).
An unexpected kind of justice is found, but not until the guru-­‐student relationship between Stella and Michael has been sorely tested. Michael has learned many important lessons from his teacher …including glorious traditional South Indian cooking. And Stella? Well…. let’s just say dreams sometimes come true in unexpected ways.

Other informations:

The film was directed by Dilip Mehta. He also wrote the screenplay with Deepa Mehta.

Chances that I'll go see the film: 100%, because I didn't have the chance to see it at the Toronto International Film Festival.
