No Reservations

Life isn't always made to order.


No Reservations
Hollywood rolls out yet another by-the-numbers rom-com, with a touch of melancholy. She's a top chef, dedicated to her job and to being the best. When her sister dies, she finds herself saddled with her young niece, something that she's not prepared for. While away on compassionate leave, her boss appoints a brash new chef. On her return, she finds herself simultaneously at odds with him, and somehow drawn to him, even though they're like chalk and cheese...
