Young Barbican: The Takeover

A delicious food-based comedy starring an ensemble cast, including its two directors Stanley Tucci and Campbell Scott.

New Jersey, 1950s. Two Italian brothers, a chef and a businessman, must do whatever it takes to impress a famous American-Italian singer and save their failing restaurant. In a final effort to save the restaurant, the brothers plan to put on an evening of incredible food.

With a terrific cast, including Tony Shalhoub, Isabella Rossellini, Ian Holm, Minnie Driver, Allison Janney, Marc Anthony and Liev Schreiber alongside Tucci and Scott, this is a bittersweet, yet life-affirming story about hopes and dreams versus reality, family and acceptance.
