Despite our best efforts our Editor is still a stranger to the #TimesUp movement so when The Kitchen trailer landed on our desk he made some unenlightened quip about it being only one of two rooms women should be allowed in.

The Kitchen” stars Oscar nominee Melissa McCarthy (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”), Tiffany Haddish (“Night School”), and Elisabeth Moss as three 1978 Hell’s Kitchen housewives whose mobster husbands are sent to prison by the FBI. Left with little but a sharp axe to grind, the ladies take the Irish mafia’s matters into their own hands—proving unexpectedly adept at everything from running the rackets to taking out the competition…….literally.
The film also stars Domhnall Gleeson (The Last Jedi”), James Badge Dale (“Only the Brave”), Brian d’Arcy James (“Spotlight”), with Margo Martindale, Oscar winner Common (“The Hate U Give), and Bill Camp (“Vice” and also in Joaquin Phoenix’ Joker in the Autumn); as well as Jeremy Bobb, E.J. Bonilla, Wayne Duvall, Annabella Sciorra, Myk Watford.
Berloff’s screenplay was based on the comic book series created for DC Vertigo by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle. The film was produced by multiple Oscar nominee Michael De Luca and Marcus Viscidi (“Rampage”). Berloff’s creative team included director of photography Maryse Alberti (“Creed”), production designer Shane Valentino (“Straight Outta Compton”), Oscar-nominated editor Christopher Tellefsen (“A Quiet Place”) and costume designer Sarah Edwards (“Ocean’s 8,”). Principal photography took place primarily in and around the film’s setting, New York City’s famed Hell’s Kitchen.
