No Reservations (2007, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Aaron Eckhart)



Based on the European original Mostly Martha, No Reservations features Catherine Zeta Jones and Aaron Eckhart turning up the heat in a veritable fondue of romantic drama.

Zeta Jones plays super dedicated, perfectionist in fact, cook Kate whose job at a top New York restaurant leaves her zero time for a relationship, her world changes for ever though when her sister dies and she has to take in her orphaned niece (played by Abigail Breslin), forced to take some time out she is more than put out to discover the arrival of a new Sous Chef Nick Palmer (played by Aaron Eckhart) who is not only a great cook but brings a whole new dynamic into the kitchen.

As Kate struggles with becoming in effect a mum and starts to fall for Nick she actually wakes up to the fact that there is more to life than the kitchen.
